After widespread ridicule and at least one demonstration outside his garage, Klawiter now has applied for a business license, after several critics pointed out that insurance companies generally do not pay claims submitted by unlicensed businesses.
According to Michigan Live:
City Clerk Mary Meines said the city sent Dieseltec another notice last week, after Klawiter posted to the business' Facebook page that he would not serve openly gay customers. The latest notice gave the business until May 15 to get a city license, she said.
"We sent him a letter last week and he was in today," Meines said Monday afternoon.
Dieseltec will not be assessed a $50 fine for non-compliance with the earlier notice, she said.
