ST. CHARLES (KMOV.com) – Tuesday morning, business owners and the public voiced their thoughts about a proposed ordinance that would end alcohol sales after 11 p.m. in St. Charles.

It was a packed room inside St. Charles City Hall as the proposed ordinance was discussed. Business owners said ending alcohol sales at 11 p.m. would hurt their bottom lines.

During the meeting Tuesday, council members heard alternatives and suggestions of ways to make Main Street safer without the proposed ordinance. There was a wide range of suggestions, including stopping ‘all you can drink’ deals, dress code enforcement and a tax to help beef up police patrols.

There will be another meeting in two weeks where the council’s final thoughts will be heard. The council plans to vote on the bill on July 3.
