City of Murrieta to ban night Happy Hours and close alcohol sales at midnight?

ATTENTION ALL MURRIETA BAR OWNERS, MANAGERS & BARTENDERS

As a local business person I have to say something about this: the City of Murrieta is trying to end all Happy Hours in Murrieta at 8pm and close ALL bars at midnight. The planning commission voted last night 5-0 to send the proposed restrictions to the city council, here is the link to the meeting agenda: http://www.murrieta.org/uploads/minutes/planning/022311PCAgenda.pdf

As a parent, I agree you should keep bars and liquor stores away from schools, however this is too restrictive on business development and our own personal freedoms.

I disagree with the idea the planning commission approved. If you disagree as well and own, manage or work at a restaurant in Murrieta that serves alcohol; or even if you just like to go out with friends and enjoy some nightlife - stand up and be heard! You can email the City Council by visiting http://www.murrieta.org/com/council.asp - let them know how you feel.

Here is a link to the article I read in the Californian this morning:
