Montgomery Limits Alcohol in Entertainment Area
The city of Montgomery is trying to cut back on some of the partying in its entertainment districts.
The City Council has passed a resolution saying people can't walk around its entertainment areas with open containers of alcohol after midnight.
The Montgomery Advertiser (http://on.mgmadv.com/13QWZBP ) reports there are currently no limits on the hours.
The city has set aside certain areas where patrons can walk outside a bar or restaurant with alcohol, but police say the practice has prompted complaints.
Council member Arch Lee says he got calls from residents and ministers asking him to support a resolution to cut back on the hours.
Mayor Todd Strange says police will remind people about the change if they see them outside with alcohol after midnight.
