Tybee Weighs Proposal To Limit Alcohol During Spring Months

Dec 27, 2016

Tybee Island's city council is scheduled to consider a plan that would restrict alcohol consumption during the spring months.

Councilmember Julie Livingston said the measure would ban open containers on the island's beaches and parking lots from March through May.

Tybee Island has been a popular spring break destination, where people gather for the annual Orange Crush party.

“We're just trying to limit the large groups gathering on the beach and in the parking lots drinking a lot of alcohol and possibly doing away with the opportunity for them to get so intoxicated that they're a hazard to themselves or to others,” Livingston said.

The ordinance was passed out the city’s public safety committee this week, she said.

Livingston said the full city council will review the ordinance at its next meeting in January.
