To attract visitors to Historic Downtown Rosenberg, a majority of the city council believe open containers of alcohol should be permitted.
Four of the seven council members agreed they would vote to rescind a long-standing ordinance that makes it illegal to have open containers of alcohol in the historic downtown section of the city.
This ban was effected decades ago when the historic downtown area featured a slew of taverns and saloons.
Those bars are now long gone.
Mayor Kevin Raines and council members Marc Morales, Tim Krugh, and Tim Anders supported the proposal to allow the open containers of alcohol, while Susan Euton and Isaac Davila did not.
Alicia Casias was absent.
The council must take a formal vote on the proposal before the law can be rescinded.
