You may be able to enjoy a drink at a White Rock beach this summer, as council considers legalizing public drinking.
If council passes the motion, residents will be able to legally drink in Memorial Park plaza.
The city is also considering adding temporary picnic benches throughout the city, to help businesses thrive.
“Designating public spaces where alcohol could be consumed would allow customers to enjoy an alcoholic beverage with their take-out, thus increasing the effective potential revenues of the restaurants,” said White Rock BIA executive director Alex Nixon.
However, councillors said they need more information about how they can police the new rules, before moving forward.
