Promote Public Safety By Following the Rules, Not Changing Them

It is important to the Historic Main Street community in Saint Charles to promote public safety and abide by the standards and laws that are in place.  There are many different approaches to maintain the variety of wonderful businesses and patrons we welcome into our community year-round.  Our approach should be more accountability and responsibility to the individual bars/restaurants located on North Main Street, not an approach that negatively affects all businesses in only a select area.  

We need to be proactive in improving the experience we provide, not limiting it.  We also advocate for a strong working relationship with the City of St. Charles Police officers.   They do everything to ensure our public safety so we should respond in kind with more respect and accountability in regards to the standards we already have in place.

The opposed approach is a proposition for Bill 12547 by the City Council of Saint Charles.  This is an ordinance amending section 600.020 of the code of ordinances to prohibit disposal of intoxicating liquor during certain hours in the historic downtown district.  It would effectively prohibit the sale of alcohol after 11:00 pm on Mondays through Saturdays and 10:00 pm on Sundays.  

Our rights come with great responsibility.  We oppose this bill because it unfairly affects businesses that make a concerted effort to deter disruptive and dangerous behaviors.  What is needed is more dialogue between City Council, businesses, and citizens to determine if this extreme measure is needed.  Bill 12547 would be severely detrimental to the bars and restaurants of North Main Street Saint Charles.  

We want to improve and continue to do business in St. Charles while emphasizing public safety and compliance with the laws in place.  We welcome any more discussion and dialogue on how to do just that.
