Dawson Mayor opposes event center ordinance

Posted: Updated:
DAWSON, GA (WALB) -

The Dawson City Council is considering an ordinance to regulate event centers. It would prohibit alcohol at the facilities and prevent them from charging people to get in.

Mayor Chris Wright doesn't support the ordinance. He said, "I tell you right now, if this ordinance is passed it will prevent my uncle's wedding reception that's going to be held in an event center in town. He won't be able to have distilled spirits at his wedding, but even Jesus turned water into wine at a wedding to keep the party going."

The city council is scheduled to vote on the proposed ordinance Thursday night.
