The proposed midnight bar closing in Point Pleasant Beach could soon be a thing of the past if lawsuits brought against the borough are dropped. According to the Point Pleasant, Mayor Vincent Barella made the offer to withdraw the early bar closing ordinance during Tuesday night's council meeting. However, he says lawsuits against the borough's district 4 parking plan must be dropped first.

The midnight bar closing ordinance was temporarily stayed by the State Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
