Revisions on teen-drinking ordinance

The Laguna Beach City Council will discuss revisions to the city’s teen-drinking ordinance at a city hall meeting Tuesday night, according to The Orange County Register.

Should the ordinance pass, adults would be penalized with a $1,000 fine for knowingly providing alcohol to minors.

The council had previously approved the ordinance Nov. 13.

Final approval is pending revisions, however, since its initial unanimous approval.

The revisions that will be presented during the meeting aim to make the ordinance more straightforward and conscious of civil rights concerns.

If Laguna Beach adopts the revisions to the ordinance it could be in effect within a month. It will also make Laguna

Beach the fourth city in Orange County to have a policy penalizing those serving alcohol to minors.
