    Bars in Wildwood will continue to close at 3 a.m.

    Bars in Wildwood, New Jersey will continue to close at 3 a.m.

    Officials in the Jersey shore resort decided not to vote on an ordinance that would have allowed bars to stay open 24 hours a day.

    Wildwood's City Commission made the decision during a hearing Wednesday night.

    Commissioners initially considered allowing the bars to remain open an extra hour until 4 a.m. 

    But they abandoned that in favor of the 24-hour suggestion by Club Luna manager John Davis.

    Davis says the additional time would help the towns' struggling bars in a difficult economy and eliminate the streets filling with
    patrons when the bars close.

    Commissioner Al Brannen urged bar owners to find new ways to attract customers.
