Tuscaloosa OKs bar closing time of 3 a.m. Friday, Saturday

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — The Tuscaloosa City Council voted 4-3 to impose a 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday closing time for businesses that serve alcohol, a move aimed largely at providing a safer environment on The Strip.
On Thursday night, bars now close at 2 a.m. Friday, and they aren't required to close at all on Friday night/Saturday morning. Councilman Lee Garrison urged the council Tuesday night to support the University Strip Area Advisory Committee's recommendation to close at 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
"I think we ought to give the committee's recommendation a chance," Garrison said. "If it doesn't work out, we can come back and look at it later."
Mayor Walt Maddox, who opposed extending the Thursday night closing time by an hour, said he is considering vetoing the council's action. It would take five council members to overturn a veto.
Police and university officials say the lack of a closing time on Saturday morning has created a crime problem. But neighborhood residents and some city officials were concerned that closing the bars too early would move late-night partying into residential areas.
Just like Atlanta's bar hours....no wonder this college town has a coke problem.
