The Pleasanton City Council, in its consideration tonight of a four-month-old petition by Redcoats British Pub in downtown Pleasanton to add more days to its schedule of nighttime entertainment, will seek more surveillance of "wandering" party-goers who have upset residential neighbors.
Mari Kennard, owner of Redcoats, located on south side of St. Mary Street near Main Street, wants to add music and dancing from 9 p.m. to midnight on Wednesday and Thursday in addition to late night entertainment now allowed on Fridays and Saturdays.
Calling the new requirements a "good neighbor" policy, City Manager Nelson Fialho and Community Development Director Brian Dolan are asking the council to require that the business managers better control outside customer activities. They also want the busines "to perform an inspection with flashlights of neighborhood streets" after the pub closes for the night.
The council meeting will start at 7 p.m. at 200 Old Bernal Ave.
