Johnson County Board of Health to hold public forum regarding underage drinking.

The Johnson County Board of Health will hold a town-hall Meeting to receive public input on social host ordinances.

Social host ordinances are meant to hold property owners more responsible for underage drinking they allow on their property.

“High-risk alcohol consumption, which includes any underage drinking, has been a community health assessment priority for two decades,” said Doug Beardsley, the director of Johnson County Public Health in a press release. “A social host ordinances is one strategy to be considered as a tool to emphasize the very important role adults play in setting expectations.”

The meeting will be held on Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Coral Ridge Mall Community Meeting Room.

This meeting will not discuss the city’s 21-ordinance.
