Law will go off books in 30 days
The book is closing on Dillon’s “open container” law. The Dillon City Council last night voted, 5-3, to endorse the second reading of an ordinance that will, among other things, repeal the city’s ban on consuming or carrying containers of alcohol in most public places in the city. The repeal is set to go into effect in 30 days. Other legal restrictions on alcohol will remain in effect. See next Wednesday’s Dillon Tribune for a full rundown of the open container law repeal, its details and implications, and responses to the repeal from people around town.
