Referendum on Folly Beach alcohol ban passes second reading

FOLLY BEACH, SC (WCSC) - Council members passed a second reading for a referendum on banning alcohol on Folly Beach.

The special meeting on the referendum was held Wednesday night.

Officials say they are hoping to leave the final decision up to voters by putting it on the ballot for the November election.

Right now, there's a 60-day ban in effect on all alcohol on the beach.  The issue stems from a large fight on the Fourth of July that sent four officers and a deputy to the hospital.
