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. Casey, who opposed the earlier closing time, argued that much of the trouble downtown is due to drug users and people gathering on the street waiting for violence to start. The vote was held Thursday.
