Beltrami County Board proposes ordinance to close bars at 1 a.m.

Commissioners also placed an immediate moratorium to prevent bars in the county from requesting a state permit to stay open until 2 a.m., as permitted by state law in counties which have not set the later closing time or prohibited sales after 1 a.m.
