Butte open container ban heads to final vote
Butte’s Council of Commissioners is preparing to take a final vote on an ordinance to curb the community’s stance on open containers of alcohol in public.
Right now, the city has no open container law.
The ordinance before the council would make it illegal to have an open alcoholic drink in public between the hours of 2 AM and 8 AM.
Capitol Reporter Dan Boyce tells us commissioners and the community are split on the issue.
