DOTHAN, Ala. An upcoming vote on allowing alcohol at outdoor events in downtown Dothan is expected to be a close one.
The Dothan Eagle reports that two city commissioners say they plan to vote in favor of the ordinance on Tuesday, and a third commissioner pledged his support for the ordinance.
However, three other commissioners said Friday they plan to vote against it.
Dothan Mayor Mike Schmitz has publicly expressed support for the ordinance, which could add another vote in favor of it.
If no one changes their mind at the last minute, the issue appears headed for approval by a 4-3 vote on Tuesday.
An Alabama law passed in 2012 allows cities to create entertainment districts where alcohol can be consumed outdoors.
