COLUMBIA - Police Chief Ken Burton said Tuesday the council OK means the city can now move ahead on an alcohol ordinance draft plan. The ordinance would ban alcohol in three of Columbia's city public parks. Flat Branch Park, Village Square Park and Paquin Park are the three parks where alcohol will soon be banned. The Columbia Police Department proposed the draft after an increase in alcohol-related issues and intoxicated people. As the law stands now, having open containers in the city's public parks is not illegal. Once the ordinance is passed, open containers will no longer be allowed without a special-use permit.
