Later last call for alcohol fails to find favor with Nashua officials
In Nashua, Mayor Donnalee Lozeau and Police Chief John Seusing are not in favor of serving booze for an extra hour.
Manchester officials have not yet made any move to adapt the 2 a.m. closing.
Lozeau praised state legislators for adopting the opt-in, amended version of the bill.
In Nashua, the mayor or a member of the Board of Aldermen would have to present a proposed ordinance or resolution recommending that city bars and lounges be permitted to serve alcohol until 2 a.m. Lozeau said she has no intention of drafting any proposal.
"It would open the door to some additional problems. I don't think it would be extreme, and I am sure we could handle it, but I still wouldn't be overly supportive of it," said Seusing.
"I understand that some business owners may like this opportunity, but I don't see a real community-wide benefit," said the mayor.
