Fresno City Council Approves Vote on Later Bar Hours

October 15, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
-- Fresno City Council members voted unanimously Thursday to introduce a new ordinance that would allow some bars to stay open two hours later. Under the proposed new ordinance, nightclubs in Downtown Fresno would be allowed to stay open until 4 a.m. but have to stop serving alcohol at 2 a.m.

The ordinance is part of a larger plan to revitalize the downtown area and to streamline the licensing for businesses that sell alcohol. Bars in North Fresno would also be allowed to extend their hours from midnight to 2 a.m.

The council's unanimous vote to introduce the proposal is the first step in changing an existing city law. It allows the ordinance to go forward for more debate before a final vote, set for October 22, 2009.
