Plan bans private underage drinking
The borough council was introduced to an ordinance that bans underage drinking on private property if the minor’s parent or guardian isn’t present.
The ordinance is aimed at large parties where the parents may not know a party is taking place. “The purpose is to give law enforcement officials another tool to combat underage drinking,” said borough clerk-administrator Kevin Sluka.
“This is a model ordinance that a number of other towns have adopted,” said borough attorney Jeremy Solomon.
The ordinance will go through another reading at the next council meeting where the public can comment on it.
