SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Officials in the Johnson County towns surrounding Iowa City said countywide alcohol policies are unnecessary and they probably wouldn’t enact 21-ordinances in their own cities.

During a joint meeting Wednesday at the Johnson County Health and Human Services building, City and county officials said they didn’t see a need for a 21-ordinance in other communities, which all have far fewer bars than Iowa City.

Some officials questioned whether a younger clientele might move to Coralville in response to Iowa City’s ordinance because of its nearness. But Coralville has not seen such an influx.

Officials said the discussion would likely be repeated on a regular basis to stem any potential issues.
