Unlike most other Idaho communities, Idaho Falls has no open container law.
The council is trying to come up with a law that will not impact popular downtown events like Oktoberfest and Alive After Five. The draft ordinance limits drinking at festivals and other events to 5,000-square-foot “beer gardens.” The size of the beer gardens is subject to negotiation.
Some advocate elimination of alcohol at events.
“I do not believe we need an open container on a public street in Idaho Falls,” said city Councilman Larry Carlson. He said there is no need to promote public drinking.
sponsored Jargon is confusing, by definition. And the financial world has its own set of cryptic words.
