Businesses in Newark are gearing up to meet new set of regulations as they brace for returning students at the University of Delaware.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that there will be a new nuisance point system for bars and restaurants.

Infractions will be based on a 1 to 10 scale.

And with enough points they could lose their liquor license.

Officials tried to assure local businesses that if they are making good faith efforts they should “not have to worry”.

The new regulations come after the death of a student at a house party in the spring.
