North Charleston to consider allowing alcohol at events at city parks
Anyone seeking to hold a wedding reception or other special event at North Charleston’s Riverfront park or any of the city’s other public spaces currently must leave behind the beer and wine.
But that could change soon.
North Charleston City Council will meet Thursday to consider a new alcohol policy for events on city property.
The city sells beer and wine in its coliseum and convention center, and it recently approved allowing restaurants to sell alcohol on the city’s East Montague Avenue sidewalks.
Now City Council members will discuss whether to take that a step further by allowing festivals and other special events to sell alcoholic beverages if they get prior approval from the city.
The issue of these sales is among several items before City Council’s committees, which begin meeting at 5 p.m. Thursday. Councilman Ed Astle said, “That will probably be the one with the most lively discussion.”
