Mt. Pleasant committee votes to allow alcohol at park

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) – A Mount Pleasant park is hoping to make to make money by selling alcohol.

On Wednesday, the Mt. Pleasant town council economic development committee voted to allow alcohol to be sold at Memorial Waterfront Park Pier.

Park officials say they have yet to make a profit at the park and hope the new sales will change that.

Memorial Waterfront Park Pier lost $100,000 during its first year. Officials say it usually takes a couple of years before a profit is turned.
