Siouxland Officials Discuss Possible Single-Beer Can Ban

There are talks among some Sioux City leaders to ban the selling of single-serve beer for off-site construction to help stop the problem of public intoxication.

According to theĀ Sioux City Journal, a local Native American activist and some local law enforcement officials came up with the idea after a round table discussion. The talk was about potential solutions to the increasing issue of homelessness and alcohol addiction.

Roughly 48% of arrests for public intoxication in Sioux City are made up of Native Americans.
