The council of Morrisville Borough on Monday night announced it plans to move forward with legal action against a local business.
As previously reported, the Nebula Hookah Lounge, according to borough officials has become a “public nuisance” and the borough will be seeking relief in the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas, officials said at last nights meeting.
Council held a an executive session prior to the meeting to discuss the reported ongoing issues of the lounge situated in a mostly residential section of the borough on Crown Street.
“The Borough will be filing in the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas, a Civil Complaint for Relief, and other relief necessary to cure ongoing and substantial violations of the Morrisville Borough Zoning Ordinance and to abate a public nuisance against Rafael Valdez owner of the Nebula Hookah Lounge” was posted to third ward  Councilman Justin Bowers social media page Tuesday morning. 
At the April council meeting, Chief of Police, George McClay cited concerns about incidents taking place in and around the lounge.
In short, McClay said said the business was becoming a problem and he was  just afraid the violence is going to escalate.
“These fistfights are going to turn to gunfights,” he said.
Valdez, after the Lower Bucks Source story ran in April commented on Facebook that he has gone to the police with ideas for solutions to some of the problems reported.
Borough Solicitor Randy Flager on Tuesday morning, while putting the finishing touches on the complaint said he it would be filed today.
They haven’t been the best of the neighbors, said Flager.
The borough has tried to work with them. Yet problems still exist even after a number of court decisions where they where fined, plead guilty, etc. and now after months of discussions with the lounge the borough is seeking relief at the county level, Flager said.
“You will see in the court filing exhibit’s all the problems the borough has cited involving this business” Flager said.
McClay said police responded to approximately 25 complaints since January involving the business, as of the April meeting.
Valdez was not available for comment as of publication time.
Lower Bucks Source expects to update this story once the court filings are made public.
