Decision postponed on bar times

- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The Anchorage Assembly continues to consider what to do about violence, unruliness and downtown bars. The Anchorage Daily News says a decision on whether large downtown bars should be required to stop serving drinks an hour earlier has been postponed. The Anchorage Assembly on Tuesday night put off the decision, and instead voted to send all versions of the various proposals about bar hours to the city's Public Safety Advisory Commission for comment. The latest proposal is being put forward by Assemblyman Patrick Flynn and is intended to avoid the crush of people leaving bars at the same hour. Another proposal being considered by the Assembly would allow bars to stay open later but not serve alcohol. The Assembly is expected to take up the issue again in February.
