Del Mar Bans Alcohol on Beaches
Tuesday, May 20, 2008
The City Council on Monday night unanimously approved an emergency ordinance that bans alcohol at city parks and beaches starting Friday and continuing through Labor Day.
Public Services Director Pat Vergne says there's been an alarming increase in public drunkenness in recent weeks, apparently because Del Mar is one of the few beaches in San Diego County where alcohol consumption is permitted.
Violators face $100 fines for the first offense.
