Attention Residents. The Borough has updated the “Open Container” ordinance. New language was included for possession of an open container. The previous ordinance only addressed drinking from an open container. This new change will not affect ordinance pertaining to the outdoor seating at The Cracker Barrel.
This does NOT restrict consumption or possession on your own property or the property of another with permission. It merely addresses consumption and possession of open containers on public property. This is a result of a reoccurring issue at certain public events. This ordinance about consuming alcoholic beverages on public property has been around since 1983. This expands the ordinance to include possessing, not just consuming from open containers.
