LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)-A proposed ordinance seeking to ban the sale of liquor in Louisville between 2 and 4 a.m. is what brought a group to Portland on Wednesday evening.
"We are opposing the ordinance that has been proposed by some members of metro council," says Martina Kunnecke with Neighborhood Planning and Preservation.
Last week, Council Members sent the proposed ordinance back to a committee for further discussion.
Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton is one of the sponsors, who has stated the idea behind the ordinance is to reduce crime, mainly in West Louisville.
"There are things going on that wouldn't normally be going on if people were home or even somewhere else other than hanging out around the liquor store," Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton told WDRB in August.
But some community members continue to have concerns with the proposed ordinance.
"My only unreadiness with the ordinance was the beer exception," says community member Donavan Taylor.
At a recent council meeting, some called for banning beer as well and treating alcohol fairly.
This group says it's not the liquor stores that are the problem. They want all businesses and establishments to be treated the same.
"As we look at the data before us we see the problems have before us, we see the problems have been related to the bars," says Martina Kunnecke.
It's why they are calling on Metro Council to have a full-blown discussion with community members, before going any further with this issue.
A spokesperson with Metro Council says they have given community members opportunities to speak about this at meetings.
However, this group says they are fighting to keep the issue a hot topic in Louisville, and would like all community members to get involved.
The Public Safety committee meets on Tuesday, where they are expected to address this issue.
