Georgia city Oks open containers, with restrictions

By The Associated Press

POWDER SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) — The City of Powder Springs is now the fourth in Cobb County to allow people to carry drinks out of restaurants and bars and drink them while they walk in the downtown area.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitition reports the City Council approved the ordinance Monday to allow patrons to consume drinks outside of businesses licensed for on-premise consumption within. Under the ordinance, people will only be allowed to sip and stroll within the city's entertainment district.

Drinks must be served in paper or plastic cups no larger than 16 ounces, and can only be served between 5 p.m. and midnight during the week and 11 a.m. and midnight on weekends. No one can take out more than one cup at a time.

Acworth, Kennesaw and Smyrna have similar ordinances in place.
