INTERVIEWS AND PHOTOS by KOLTEN PARKER
This is Day 4 of our man-on-the-river interviews about proposed new San Marcos parks rules, including a ban on alcohol. Parker mapped the responses from his interviews here.
According to our unscientific survey conducted online last week, 61 percent of San Marcos Mercury readers either strongly disagree or disagree with the proposed alcohol display and consumption ban and 47 percent oppose giving the parks director the authority to ban barbecue grills. The same pool of respondents heavily favor steeper littering fines and prohibiting Styrofoam containers. Download a summary of survey responses here.
The council is scheduled to vote on the measures today, April 3. If you can’t attend the 6 p.m. meeting at San Marcos City Hall, tune into live tweeting of the debate by following @themercurynews on Twitter.
