DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) – It may come down to a matter of wording on whether a Dothan motorcycle Club can keep its business license. The city commission held a public hearing Tuesday to discuss the future of Chaotic Few Motorcycle Club.

The Dothan Planning Department says the club initially applied for a club license but it was denied because of zoning. Then, they applied for a business license saying they were a motorcycle repair shop, which is allowed activity in that area.

“They basically falsified an application to obtain a license so they could get the utilities turned on so they could use it as a clubhouse,” said Revenue Officer Garry Shirah.

Greg Drescher spoke to the commission on behalf of the club – admitting they weren’t technically a for-profit business, but what they put down on their application is true. “Technically our business license says we are Chaotic Few Motorcycle Repair and we do repair each other’s motorcycles.”

Drescher says the group gets together at their clubhouse off Napier Field Road on Fridays and Saturdays to bond over bikes and sometimes beer. He says they also host service projects for the community.

“There was a family in Dothan whose house burned down, so we’re trying to get them up some clothes and furniture,” said Drescher.

Shirah says the Dothan Planning Department has gotten anonymous complaints about the club saying that it’s operating more like a nightclub and there have been reports of dancers.

Drescher says that’s not the case.

“We’re a motorcycle club, we’re not a strip club. We don’t have strippers,” Drecher stated. “The allegations that we have strippers at our clubhouse is incorrect.”

During the commission meeting, Dothan Police Chief Steve Parrish said he was not familiar with any officers responding to the bike club’s shop because of complaints.

City commissioners were split over next steps. Commissioner David Crutchfield was vocal in siding with the Planning Department in that what was put down on the application wasn’t quite factual.

“Is this something we condone?” Crutchfield asked.

But Commissioner Beth Kenward says there’s also an argument that could be made in favor of allowing the business to keep operating.

“I agree that we shouldn’t be falsifying things, but they are repairing bikes there. They are working on each other’s bikes. So, technically you could make the argument that they are doing what the business license says they should be doing.”

Kenward suggested possibly having the property rezoned so they could stay at that location and continue functioning.

The Planning Department noted that to get a business license, you don’t have to be a for-profit business.

The commission decided to table the vote and wait until the member listed on the business license is in town to discuss the matter further. Alan Estes was out of town on work.

Kenosha News

Ken’z Smooth Kutz Barbershop and WolfPack Motorcycle Club of Kenosha joined forces Sunday to organize their ninth annual Back to School book bag giveaway.

More than 600 book bags were distributed to children and families as they enjoyed the picnic environment on Sunday afternoon. The event, which ran five hours starting at 11 a.m., had a variety of kids games, raffles, food and music to enjoy.

Kenny Smith, owner of Smooth Kutz Barbershop, who also prepares the food, remains humbled by the tremendous need in the community.

“It is important for our kids to be prepared on their first day of class,” he said.

“Providing a brand new book bag, filled with school supplies is the least I can do to support our youth while reducing the financial barriers of our hardworking parents,” he said.

“Our collaboration with WolfPack and the community in general continues to makes this event a tremendous success year after year. When I see smiles on the kids’ faces and the look of satisfaction, relief, and thankfulness on the faces of the parents, I am reminded why I chose to be part of this organization,” said chapter president Shawn (Weeman) Payne.

he chapter vice president, Tony “Taz” Irby, added, “Every child deserves to go back to school with a book bag and school supplies and every child who came today got just that.”

“The WolfPack Motorcycle Club of Kenosha prides itself on charity, brotherhood, and love for the ride. With sponsors and donors from every level like local residents Tim and Stephanie Connolly and Senator Bob Wirch, organizations including the Mahone Foundation, Papa John’s, Culver’s, and the city of Kenosha, we are able to pull the community together and bridge gaps otherwise uncrossed,” Irby said.

The club does a variety of charity work in Kenosha and Waukegan, Ill., including an upcoming winter clothing drive where members collect warm clothing for the homeless before winter arrives.
