Murray City Council Looks to Revise Tavern Operating Hours
Taverns in Murray may stay open a little longer as part of a city effort to keep liquor business within city limits and cut down on public intoxication charges.
The Murray City Council Thursday night passed the amendment's first reading on a 5 to 6 vote to extend operating hours from midnight to 1:30 a.m. for the four taverns within city limits.
The amendment comes as part of a series of alcoholic beverage control revisions mandated by a new state law.
Councilman Jason Pittman proposed the amendment. He says the move should prevent Murray customers from travelling to Tennessee to take advantage of 3 a.m. liquor establishments and keep taxis within city limits and boost business.
