KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–Kenosha’s License and Permit Committee has approved an ordinance change that governs cabaret licenses.

The changes include concluding events at 1:30 AM, requiring venues to have security and operational plans, as well as meet with the alderperson of the district during the license application process. The changes were approved on a 4-1 vote.

That came after around three hours of citizens’ comment and debate. Several establishment owners spoke against the changes-including an attorney for the Tavern League of Wisconsin who criticized the proposal as being too subjective.

The changes now go to the full Common Council for final approval.
