Much of the council's discussion focused on forcing bars within the city to close at 1 am. Currently, downtown bars are forced to stop serving alcohol at&nbsp;1 am but can stay open later to allow patrons time to leave. City Chief Financial Officer Robert Martin said the council proposed forcing businesses to close at 1:30 to reduce incidences of public disturbances.</span></p><p> Thu, 09 May 2013 17:24:24 +0000 Rob Canning 31572 at http://wkms.org Hopkinsville City Council Discusses Alcohol Ordinance
