The Re-Opening Of Olympus Bar At 86 Bolton Ave Alexandria, Louisiana

Olympus Bar Needs Your Help

    1. Petition by

      Jaleesa Delafosse

Olympus Bar has provided the Alexandria Louisiana a safe, drug free establishment for several years. Now that they have moved to 86 Bolton Ave, Alexandria, Louisiana the City Of Alexandria will not grant a City License to sell alcohol on the premisses. But yet the entire neighborhood has a ton of stores that sells alcohol. This area was full of drug activity, homeless squatters, and prostitution. They have cleaned up the area and made it safe for people to come back to Bolton Ave and try to rebuild it. Bolton Ave is full of empty buildings, empty boarded up houses. I respect Olympus Bar for trying to rebuild a part of Alexandria that had seem to be forgotten by many residents, and business owners. We have the right as voters, and Americans to try to build our community and bring in revenue where ever we want as long it is in a safe, drug free environment, and establishment. Please stand with us and sign this Petition so it can be provided to the Mayor Jacques Roy of Alexandria. We have a voice, now it is time to be heard.....

      I feel that Olympus should be allowed to have the alcohol license reinstated. I worked there for 3 years and NEVER Once were they cited or charged for contributing Alcohol to ANY Minors. If someone got a little too intoxicated they offered to call a taxi and sometimes we "The Bar Staff" would bring the person or persons home. This is NOT something that just any bar does. We have held many benefit shows to raise money for CLASS. Fed the hungry, given job opportunites to individuals that NEEDED a job. Olympus is a Healthy environment for ANYONE. Its so sad that an establishment geared to do so much good has its hands tied for no reason at all. Olympus followed the rules that the city had lay down and still they received nothing but trouble and hardships. Shame on you Alexandria. SHAME!!!!!

      The Olmpus is a very well run bar. There are NO DRUGS in this place, like another one I know. We should have a right to have more than one choice on where we go. Our rights are being taken away from us. We dont live in Cuba. This is the USA, land of the free and we are not free becauce our choice has been taken from us
