RES 21-1575 12/1/2021 6:29 PMRachel Brawley   I live on grand and have no qualms with a business staying open until 2 AM. The bar is now under new ownership and shouldn't face the consqeuneces of the previous owner's poor oversight and leadership. +1
RES 21-1575 12/1/2021 6:24 PMAlex Krug For As a resident on Grand Ave I have no issue with bars staying open until 2 AM. There has been an uptick in car thefts since bars have been closing earlier. With bars staying open until 2 am and possibly more people on the street at that time, it could keep eyes on the street and lessen the chance of car theft. Also, the new owners shouldn't be punished for an event that happened under different ownership. +1
