Problems such as violence, disturbance and lack of orderliness and possible solutions were discussed. For example, attendees asked that the operating license of the bars Monte Carlo and Mónakó on Laugavegur not be renewed, Morgunbladid reports.
Mayor of Jón Gnarr was a panelist at the meeting. He said the conclusion had been that further discussions must be encouraged and awareness raised on violence and how it can be reduced.
Gnarr stated general awareness on how to handle alcohol would deliver the best results, not further regulations.
