What She SAYS - -vs- - What She DOES
Quote from Lynda Allen to City Council: "I have my refrigeration man [here] that can tell you about the ice machine... that's not really a problem... because it doesn't run all night."

Actually, the ice machine does run all night much more often than she cares to remember or admit when not under oath. (Oh, by the way, congratulations to TLC Catering on setting a new record last month - almost 50% of all nights - 15 out of 31).
And don't forget the Ice Bucket Brigade - an integral part of the icemaker's operation. Every weekday morning from 3:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. my air is polluted with banging of empty 5-gallon plastic pails, the repetitive, clattering noise of shoveling ice into those pails, latching and slamming ice bin lids and doors, and other disturbances related to the illegal operation of TLC Catering.
And one of Snow White's dwarves whistles while she works... (Hi Ho, Hi Ho, We get to play with Snow...)
I truly DO understand that a business such as this requires preparations during early morning hours. That is EXACTLY why such businesses should not be located in residential zones.
Allen & Brassey's claim of grandfathered land use is FALSE - and TLC Catering should be MOVED elsewhere (... or shut down, if that is T, L, and C's choice.)
