A measure was put in place last April allowing underage people into establishments in the Chippewa entertainment district on Thursday nights.

That ordinance expired last night and council members chose not to extend it. During the six month trial period the mayor's office says there were four incidents that lead to four bars being shut down.

Mayor Byron Brown says there are other places in the city for younger people to go that don't have as many bars in one area -- like Chippewa and that may lead to less problems.

Brown says they will depend on police patrols to make sure that the new rule is being enforced.
