Committee reviews night club ordinance

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Monday night, the public will be able to sound off on a new nightclub ordinance proposed by Mayor Dwight Jones and the Richmond City Council.

The legislation is in response to recent violence outside of nightclubs and teen clubs in the city. It could revamp the permitting and penalty process for these venues.

The paper goes before Council's public safety committee at 5 p.m. at the police academy at 1202 West Graham Road.
