The police report for Sept. 5 included yet another report of the Butler Township Police Department responding to an all-too-familier call of drunk and disorderly patrons at the Butler Days Inn and Playmakers Bar housed within. This appears to be par for the course of this establishment. On many occasions, I have been awakened in the early morning hours by the sound of parking lot fights, loud and boistrous patrons, breaking bottles and a “one for the road” partying atmosphere. I have repeatedly observed visibly impaired individuals making “nature calls” and reckless burnouts onto Route 8. Would this be acceptable in your neighborhood? Wedding receptions serving alcohol are a constant nuisance as patrons appearing outside are loud, use unacceptable language and often leave a littered mess for property owners to clean up. The best witnesses to all this are the responding officers, backed by their reports published in the Butler Eagle, and the records on file at the township police headquarters. We proudly boast of a first-class township. Let the citizens of Butler Township live up to that title by permanently closing what in my personal opinion is a nuisance bar.
