ATLANTA (WAOK)-The Alpharetta City Council approved a proposal Monday night that eases restrictions on outdoor consumption of alcohol. The new ordinance allows the outdoor sale and consumption of alcohol at certain events. The ordinance passed the Council unanimously.
The Downtown Alpharetta Trade Association wanted the change to city alcohol laws in an effort to get more people downtown and help boost economic activity.
The ordinance goes into effect immediately.
This is the second ordinance that is “alcohol friendly.” In May, the Alpharetta City Council voted 7-0 to allow people dining out to bring their own bottle of wine.
