According to MPRB Ordinance PB2-17. No person or entity shall serve, dispense or consume any alcohol on park property except as specifically authorized herein. Alcohol may be served, dispensed or consumed on park property only pursuant to a permit issued by the superintendent or authorized by board action.
Any such permit or authorization for the serving and dispensing of alcohol shall be conditioned upon the requesting person or entity providing proof of the existence of adequate insurance coverage as required by its liquor license and state law and naming the MPRB as an additional insured on such insurance policy.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, no person or entity may serve or dispense alcohol for consumption unless:
- The person or entity has obtained all necessary licenses that may be required under the laws of the State of Minnesota and any governing political subdivision.
- The person or entity complies with all applicable laws, rules or regulations promulgated by the State of Minnesota and any governing political subdivision regarding the serving or dispensing of alcohol for consumption.
