Alcohol in the Park Permit
Alcohol in the Park Permit

Under state law, RCW 66.44.100 and City of Moses Lake Ordinance No. 571, it is illegal to consume liquor in public places including but not limited to city parks and parking lots unless a permit has been obtained to consume liquor from the Washington State Liquor Control Board under RCW 66.24.481.  A public place is defined by RCW 66.04.010(23). After consultation with the Police, Fire, and Parks and Recreation Departments, the City Manager is given the authority to permit the usage of liquor on city-owned property including city parks under and with appropriate terms and conditions.  The request to consume liquor on city-owned property, including parks, must be completed with this form and returned to the City Manager at least thirty (30) days prior to the event.  The permission and authorization to consume liquor on city-owned property, including city parks, will be given in writing and will include the appropriate terms and conditions.  If any person or organization is dissatisfied with the decision of the City Manager with regard to a request to consume liquor on city-owned property, including city parks, the person or organization may appeal that decision to the Moses Lake City Council.  The appeal must be in writing and will be presented to the City Council at its next regularly scheduled City Council meeting.
