Helena Commission to consider changes to open container ordinance

HELENA — The Helena City Commission is slated to hear two proposals at their June 7 meeting that would significantly change restrictions on open containers of alcohol.

Two options are being presented Monday evening. The first would completely repeal all open container restrictions in city limits. The second would keep the current ordinance intact but would create an exception for the Downtown Urban Renewal District which extends from Centennial Park to where S. Park Avenue meets S. Cruse Street.
