RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - City leaders have settled on a plan to curb violence at Richmond nightclubs.

Monday night the City Council unanimously adopted a nightclub ordinance it has been debating for months.

The paper was drafted after violence erupted outside bars in Shockoe Bottom and on Broad Street.

Now there will be a new process for issuing permits and revoking them, which city leaders say will keep Richmonders safe while enjoying city nightlife.
