Night-club managers may be on call

On the same day the Board of Supervisors is voting on legislation to empower the Entertainment Commission to crackdown on problem nightclubs, the commission is voting to amend its so-called Good Neighbor Policy.

On Tuesday at 5 pm the Entertainment Commission meets to vote on revising the policy to read: “In addition, a manager or other responsible person shall maintain a cell phone number for at least two hours after the close of business to allow for police and emergency personnel or other City personnel to contact that person concerning incidents that have occurred at establishment.”

City officials are attempting to curb violence associated with problem night clubs. For those looking for the commission to prove itself with its new authority the board is expected to grant, perhaps that’s a good start?
