(Provo-AP) -- Closing time might be a little later for watering holes in Provo.
City Council members are expected to pass a proposal that extends the time patrons can consume alcohol from one a-m to two a-m.
Right now, alcohol can't be consumed after one a-m. The proposal follows the bill state lawmakers passed earlier this year.
Though alcohol still can't be sold after one a-m, the law will let drinkers linger a little longer. That means they won't have to slam their drinks, then get into the car right afterward.
The change would affect the city's three taverns and four private clubs.
Provo Police Chief Craig Geslison says he doesn't think tweaking the city's law would cause any issues, but they're ready to address any that pop up.
