The Cheyenne city council, came up with a compromise Monday night regarding Mingles, the local bar in trouble for serving minors. The bar failed three compliance checks last year.
A resolution up for consideration Monday night would have sent the case to District Court and Mingles would face having it's liquor license suspended for up to 30 days.
Instead, what they came up with will force the bar to close down for 14 days, starting March 18.
Then they'll face a 6 month probation period when they get back up and running.
If they get caught violating the law during that time, the case will be sent directly to District Court.
"Since we've never really been in this position before, it's uncharted waters, I thought it was much better for us to have a defined set of time where the business couldn't do any business and allow them to retrain their employees or whatever they want to do with that time. But we also have six months worth of time where if they have any penalty whatsoever regarding underage drinking then we go right back to where we are today," said Sean Allen, city councilman for Ward I.
The amendment to the resolution passed by a 7-3 vote. Georgia Broyles, Annette Williams and Bryan Cook voting against it.
