VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - Last call could be coming earlier at four Vicksburg bars next year.

Mayor George Flaggs tells The Vicksburg Post (https://bit.ly/1rbfKkj) that the Mississippi Department of Revenue has revoked resort status for four bars. That status allows them to serve alcohol 24 hours a day. The city enforces a 2 a.m. closing time on other bar and nightclubs.

Flaggs says the four bars - the Beechwood Inn, Monsour’s at the Biscuit Company, the Upper End and LD’s Kitchen - could face a city-mandated closing time as early as Jan. 2.

Police Chief Walter Armstrong says the decision will help curb crime in the early morning hours. He says the police get a “significant volume” of calls from the four bars.

Vicksburg’s four casinos will not be affected by the move.
