GREEN BAY -- Green Bay city leaders are dropping a plan to keep bartenders from drinking on the job.
The plan was originally suggested by police as a way to keep downtown safer. Bartenders and tavern owners objected, saying it would interfere with the tradition of bartenders and customers drinking together. City Aldermen say, it should be up to the individual bars to regulate drinking on the job.
"The next step is the owners of these establishments stiffening up. They're going to come together and they're going to stiffen up and they'll say, 'This is real life,' " says District 7 Alderman Dave Boyce.
This topic could be revisited at a later date.
