BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Baton Rouge Metro Council will consider changing parish ordinances to make it easier to sell and purchase alcohol.
The Advocate reports the proposed amendment to the East Baton Rouge Parish ordinance would create a special class of license to allow the Parks and Recreation Commission for the Parish of East Baton Rouge to sell alcohol at select facilities such as golf courses and rental halls.
Under the amendment before the council, BREC facilities will be allowed to serve from 10 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. Also, the ordinance proposal contains a special waiver for BREC that allows them to sell alcohol within 300 feet of a public playground, something prohibited for other classes of license.
