PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - The Pascagoula City Council has voted to set up a “leisure district” that would allow patrons to take drinks to go, and it also paved the way for a vote on a restaurant tax to support recreation.

The leisure district would run along Pascagoula from Convent Avenue to U.S. 90 and west to the river. It would also dip south, and in all would encompass the downtown bars and restaurants.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2aal6u8) the council also decided Tuesday night to let residents vote Aug. 30 on whether they want a 2 percent tax on prepared food at restaurants and other entities that serve food. The money raised would support a $10 million bond for Parks and Recreation projects.
