Possible changes for 21 and up ordinance

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- The Iowa City City Council is also looking at changing the status of some Iowa City bars to make them exempt from the 21 and up ordinance.

The council is considering designating certain locations as "entertainment venues."

One bar suggested an exempt location be required to have a live music, literary, or theatrical performance more than 75 percent of the nights it is open.

Iowa City's mayor says the definition of who is eligible needs to be narrow and there needs to be a low tolerance for alcohol related offenses.

Voters will decide whether to keep the 21 and up ordinance in November.
