Proposed alcohol consumption limitations on Tybee Island

TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -

A task force formally recommending Tybee Island City Council limit people drinking beer or wine in specific public places.

Mayor Jason Buelterman says he received a letter Tuesday.

The task force, appointed in the wake of a shooting at this year’s Orange Crush event, says it will help regulate crowd control and enhance public safety.

Now, Tybee is one of the only beaches in the region where open drinking is legal.

City Council’s public safety committee will review the letter at its next meeting at the end of October.
