Liquor Allowed In Parks During Events



Liquor may be a more common sight during events at Yakima parks this summer.

Last night the Yakima City Council voted 6 to 1 to amend its current municipal code to allow alcohol to be served at any city park during events with a permit.

Currently, that liquor consumption is limited to a number of parks owned by the city or operated by the Yakima Greenway Foundation.

The amended ordinance will go into effect next month.
