Nashua aldermen on Tuesday rejected a proposal from the Nashua Board of Health that would have placed a 9:30 p.m. curfew on bars, restaurants and nightclubs.
“I think that we are punishing too many businesses and individuals that have already suffered enough,” said Alderman Richard Dowd. Closing select businesses a few hours early will not make a difference and police and public health officials do not have the time to enforce a curfew, he said.
Despite a recommendation from the Board of Health, the proposed curfew was still rejected with a vote of 4 aldermen in support and 11 aldermen opposed. The proposal was then tabled, meaning the issue could potentially be brought forward again at an upcoming meeting.
