Cape Coral moves toward trial for water park alcohol sales

Cape Coral City Council members continued to move toward approving beer and wine sale at Sun Splash Family Water Park at a special meeting Monday.

The council decided they would vote on a one-year trial program at the next council meeting on Feb. 11.

Community members at the meeting are divided on the idea of serving alcohol at the community water park.

A presentation on the revenue and safety protocols put in place persuaded some council maembers.

The presentation said the park would gain nearly $7,000 in daily revenue. There would be a two-drink maximum enforced by security cameras and trained personnel and several park improvements.

If the park sold 400 drinks per day, it would make about $186,000 a year.

The park wants to use the profit to help pay for maintenance and new amenities.
