Ban on drinking in parks closer to reality

The City Council has moved close to banning alcohol at most parks, except for gatherings with a police permit. Tuesday night, it unanimously approved the outline of an ordinance that would be in effect for two years. It could be renewed after that if officials think it has curbed problems related to excessive drinking.
