RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING PUBLIC CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ON AUGUST 11, 2004, IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE VETERAN’S MEMORIAL HALL CLASSIC CAR SHOW AND SOCK HOP.
BY COUNCILOR LITTLE:
BE IT RESOLVED, that pursuant to Section 8-22(b) of the Duluth City Code, the Duluth City Council hereby authorizes consumption of alcoholic beverages in public places on Michigan Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues West on August 11, 2004, in conjunction with the St Louis County Historical Society Classic Car Show, provided that all alcoholic beverages consumed outside of designated serving areas of licensed establishments be consumed only from paper or plastic cups.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the dates of this authority may be amended, in the case of inclement weather, if requested in writing by the licensee and approved by the administration.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution waives the drinking in public prohibition in conjunction with the Classic Car Show at the Depot. Such waiver for special events is authorized by Section 8-22(b) of the City Code and is requested by the police department after consultation with the St Louis County Heritage and Arts Center to eliminate the law enforcement problem of having to take action against persons wandering beyond the designated service areas with drinks. For safety purposes, all alcoholic beverages consumed in these areas will have to be in paper cups.
