Bullhead City Seeks To Reform Open Container Laws For Parks
Bullhead City, Arizona looks set to allow the consumption of alcohol in city parks – so long as it isn't in a glass container.
The Mohave Daily News reports city council discussed the matter on Tuesday, and members were in favor of relaxing rules currently prohibiting alcohol in parks.
Councilmembers said law enforcement is usually told to ignore the laws on the books during large events, like Bullhead City's River Regatta.
They also said the current laws on the books may discourage tourists from visiting the city and its parks.
Under the proposal, beer, wine and malt liquor consumption would be allowed, as long as it is not in a glass container.
Additionally, the consumption of hard liquor would still be prohibited in city parks, but its possession would not be.
