About this Article

Mayor George Pradel begged the council to "hold off" and Police Chief Robert Marshall says the move will require the city to hire more police, but Naperville officials increased their late-night liquor permits by one. Council members voted 8 to 1, with Pradel voting no, to expand the capped permits to allow for Ballydoyle to open its new Empire craft beer and burger pub at the corner of Chicago Avenue and Main Street in the old Rosebud site.
