What are the open container laws in the City?

It is against the law to consume from, or possess an open container of alcoholic beverage on any street, parking lot, or public right of way. With the exception of Memorial Park (The Bandshell) you may consume or possess alcoholic beverages on City beaches and City parks provided you are not using glass containers or containers with an excess of 5 gallon capacity. For a fee, you may obtain a permit from the Office of the City Clerk to possess alcoholic beverages in the Memorial Park are and for quantities in excess of 5 gallons. In any case, a public area must be returned to its "pre-use" state, and for large gatherings where a permit is required, a $100 dollar clean-up deposit will be returned only following an approved inspection of the area.
