City council to take bids on new waterslide at water park

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The Cape Girardeau city council discussed a waterslide project Monday night, and whether to tighten alcohol rules within the city.

At Monday's meeting, the city said it will continue to accept bids for the construction of a new fiberglass waterslide or waterslides at Cape Splash.

Parks and Recreation say it would "provide additional entertainment" at the park for teens and adults.

It is a $1.3 million project. The cost to cover project will be paid through the restaurant tax, according to the city.

The council also discussed the code regarding alcoholic beverages. No action was taken.

The proposal from Police Chief Wes Blair is to limit those under 21 years old from going into a business that sells "intoxicating liquor" to customers.

It also proposes mandatory server training "with proof of certification to be maintained at the licensee's premises."

The city says police have seen a rise in underage drinking at businesses.
