CORINTH, Miss. (AP) - Corinth aldermen have rejected a proposed prohibition on the brown bagging of alcohol at all bars in the city.

The Daily Corinthian reports (https://bit.ly/1M83x5s ) the board of aldermen voted 5-1 against the proposal this week.

The discussion on whether brown bagging should continue to be legal in restaurants that do not hold a license from the state came down to issues of fairness and enforcement.

Establishments licensed for the legal sale of alcoholic beverages cannot allow brown bagging.

City officials say in those establishments where brown bagging is legal, it is only for liquor and wine. The city’s own restrictions prohibit the brown bagging of beer and light wine in any establishment.

Alderman Andrew “Bubba” Labas cast the only “yes” vote. He says the ban would create a level playing field.
