Coalition plans groundwork for social host proposal
Members of Hill County Coalition for Rethinking Drinking, which is working to reduce binge drinking and drunken driving, have agreed to focus on telling people about the idea of a social host ordinance as the next step in pushing for such an ordinance.
"I think we probably have to do a better job of educating," said Tim Maroney, pastoral minister at St. Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church.
The coalition is researching implementing a social host ordinance in Havre. Under such an ordinance, adults who provide a location for underage drinking could be held liable for the underage drinking.
