Jefferson City festival district approved - for now

April 5th, 2011 in News

Residents of Jefferson City will soon be able to raise a glass to the City Council in a new way, so long as it is in the right glass.

During the last regular meeting of the current council, members voted 9-1 to approve the long-discussed festival district on a temporary basis through the end of June.

The ordinance would suspend open container ordinance to allow individuals who participate in events with a district permit to consume alcoholic beverages on city streets.
