Springfield’s License Commission has voted 3-to-2 against Mayor Domenic Sarno’s proposal to impose a 1 a.m. curfew for city bars. Commission Chairman Peter L. Sygnator backed the curfew, saying that by not curbing late-night crime, the commission sends a message that Springfield is a dangerous place at night. Commission member Robert G.

The vote was held Thursday.
