A resolution that would allow alcoholic beverages at city sponsored events was brought to the Webb City Council meeting this evening.
The proposal would allow the possibility a of beer garden to be set up for city sponsored events within city parks. Some of the requirements included a designated area for those with beverages, only drinks purchased in the location could be used, and that sales of alcohol must end a half-hour before the event ends. People under the age of twenty-one would be prohibited from entering the drinking area and the one entrance to the designated location would be guarded by a police officer.
But…In a close vote, the council turned down this resolution.
“We as a city government presented it early because we’re planning our festivals now and i just wanted my staff to have the answer of whether or not it would be allowed before they planned the event. Now we know…We’ll still go forward with the events.” says Webb City Administrator Carl Francis
Francis says that having a beer garden could have helped attract more people to events that were organized by the city.
