WARREN COUNTY, N.Y. -- It's not last call yet for bars owners in Warren County. The State Liquor Authority decided Thursday to delay a decision on whether to change closing time for bars in the county.
Some are pushing to have the time of last call changed for bars and restaurants from 4 a.m. back to 3 a.m.
Glens Falls' mayor says rolling the time back would improve the quality of life in the area, citing several crimes that happen in the early morning hours. But bar owners are concerned with what a change would mean to their bottom line.
The liquor authority has now decided to take up the proposal at their September 25th meeting in New York City, instead of next week as originally planned.
"The State Liquor Authority will have a board meeting and at that board meeting we will vote on whether or not to approve the resolution that's been adopted by the county. The ultimate authority as to whether or not the resolution becomes effective or not lies with the state government," said Dennis Rosen, Chairman of the State Liquor Authority.
People have until September 12th to weigh in.
