ITEM TITLE: Ordinance amending YMC 13.16.070 to allow consumption of alcohol during special events at Fisher Park Golf Course SUBMITTED BY: Chris Waarvick, Director of Public Works Ken Wilkinson, Parks and Recreation Manager CONTACT Ken Wilkinson, Parks and Recreation Manager, 575 - PERSON/TELEPHONE: 6020 SUMMARY EXPLANATION: Requests have been received from organizations and businesses asking for permission to serve alcohol to their guests when they rent Fisher Park Golf Course for their private group outing. Currently, YMC 13.16.070 regulates liquor consumption at specific parks facilities. The proposed ordinance would amend the Yakima Municipal Code to include Fisher Park Golf Course, along with The Harman Center, the Gateway Sports Complex, and parks owned by the City and operated by the Greenway. If the amended ordinance is passed, alcohol consumption would be allowed and regulated at Fisher Park Golf Course during private events. These events would be closed to the general public. Functions requesting alcohol consumption would only be allowed to be booked when school is not in session. Since Eisenhower High School is across the street from Fisher Park Golf Course, Yakima School District was asked for their input and the response is attached. Currently, applicants who reserve spaces at other city facility locations like The Harman Center and Gateway Sports Complex, where alcohol consumption is allowed, apply for a "banquet" type permit from the Washington State Liquor Control Board.
