New liquor ordinance passed in East Cape Girardeau

EAST CAPE GIRARDEAU, IL (KFVS) -

There were fireworks across the river as the East Cape Girardeau Village Board voted on a new liquor ordinance on Tuesday evening.

Angry board members walked out of the meeting.

The small town is home to a strip club, two restaurants and a dance hall.

Mayor Joe Aden said yes, they passed a new liquor ordinance, but he couldn't share any specifics.

Two board members who voted against it say plans to tackle safety, security and hours at the businesses were all taken out before the vote.
