City Leaders Bar Minors from Bars
Published March 21st, 2014
GAINESVILLE- City leaders are on their way to barring minors from bars.
A Gainesville ordinance is in the works that will prevent anyone under the age of 18 from entering a place that makes the sale of alcohol its primary business.
It's an effort to prevent risky behavior.
Gainesville Residents Lyle Beckham and a group of his friends say they can get themselves in a lot of trouble, "well that's it drinking and driving... Continue to do a lot of stupid stuff....Yeah other than that drinking, kids are gonna be kids."
This new proposed ordinance will go through a second reading place at the city commission meeting next week, and go into effect immediately when passed.
