Mobile City Council Looking To Make Entertainment District Permanent

Posted: Updated:
Mobile, AL - Council President Gina Gregory says, for the most part, the open container Downtown Entertainment District has been a success.  The experimental program expired on Ash Wednesday.  The Mobile City Council plans to enact a 180 day extension while exploring the possibility of enacting it so they wouldn’t have to constantly renew it.  They plan to send the issue to the Cultural Committee so others can weigh in on the topic before a permanent ordinance is drafted.

The Mobile City Council will hold off voting on an ordinance exempting property owners around Ladd-Peebles Stadium from getting a business license if they use their land to park cars during football games.  Police Chief James Barber says he would like some sort of enforcement arm through the Department.  He says he would like property owners to mark off their land and have some sort of documentation showing who the rightful owner of the land is.  Barber says this will help officers responding to complaints of illegally parked cars during crowded game days. 

Councilman John Williams appears to be the lone no vote on the issue.  He says they should not set a precedent by writing people out of the law when others could also qualify for a business license exemption.
