Ordinance Allowing Sidewalk Wine Passes First Reading
Ordinance Allowing Sidewalk Wine Passes First Reading

An ordinance that would allow the sale and consumption of wine on sidewalks in downtown Mitchell passed first reading on Monday night.  The council voted 5-3 in favor of the ordinance.  A similar ordinance was defeated by the council last spring.  Council president Jeff Smith, who voted in favor of the ordinance last year, brought it back to the council.  One change in the new ordinance is that sidewalk sales and consumption can not occur during Corn Palace Week.  Only one person testified in opposition to the ordinance.  The ordinance now must pass a second reading.
