Folks there may now get a to-go cup and walk around Smyrna Market Village with an adult beverage after the city council approved an ordinance allowing it Monday night, said Smyrna spokeswoman Jennifer Bennett.
The ordinance makes the Market Village a “restaurant district,” which accommodates open containers.
“The City of Smyrna wishes to encourage patronage of local businesses and restaurant districts in the downtown area and other commercial centers around the community so as to support the economic health of the community,” according to a document from the meeting agenda.
