Ottawa Council Lifts Alcohol Ban South Of The River

Posted by wlpo on October 15, 2013

For the first time since World War Two, buying and selling alcohol south of the Illinois River in Ottawa is okay.

The Ottawa City Council last night lifted the ban on alcohol sales in south Ottawa.  Mayor Bob Eschbach called the ban “archaic” and says people are pretending if they think no one is drinking south of the river.

Krogers led the push to get rid of the alcohol ban on the south side.  Eschbach says he’s only gotten one letter and one anonymous call against lifting the alcohol ban.
