October 26, 2019–9:56 p.m.
The Rome City Commission will consider ordinances regarding public consumption of alcohol and the parking of business vehicles in residential neighborhoods when they meet Monday night.
The alcohol ordinance amendment would permit public consumption at the Rome Area History Museum, Barron Stadium, the City Clock Tower and grounds, the Fort Norton events facility and any other area approved by the Alcohol Control Commission through a temporary permit.
The correction to the parking ordinance states that the parking of any business vehicle in the right-of-way of a public street which lies fully or partially within any type of residential district is prohibited.
The exceptions would be ordinary passenger vehicles, pick-up trucks, panel trucks, vans used to provide daily transportation to and from work, or vehicles with a carrying capacity of less than one and one-half ton.
Monday’s Rome City Commission meet begins at 6:30 p.m. at Rome City Hall.
