The ordinance allows alcohol sales during certain events, but vendor applicants will have to get a liquor permit through the state and the approval of the city manager’s office. Also, the city plans to allow nonprofit organizations to earn money from selling bear at city events.
City leaders say this is part of expanding its offerings at Stubbs Park, which will host double the events next year.
“This is not a revenue source for the city of Centerville,” Mayor Brooks Compton said. “This is an opportunity for citizens to make more use for the park, bring more events to the park that will provide good activities for the people of Centerville and those who visit the park for a good activity.”
