Attorney general says Clarksville parks can't sell alcohol

Posted:

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A state attorney general's opinion that says the city of Clarksville's Parks and Recreation Department can't sell alcohol could affect other Tennessee cities.

According to The Leaf-Chronicle, the Clarksville City Council passed an ordinance in 2012 allowing Parks and Recreation to sell beer and liquor at certain parks and city-owned venues for special events.

City officials looked at that as an opportunity to take in a little extra money that could benefit some of their facilities.

But the opinion handed down this month by the attorney general's office says they can't legally sell alcohol at all; not even at the two municipal golf courses where beer has been sold for years.
