Coober Pedy green lights total dry zone

Updated Thu 22 Aug 2013 From abc.net.au

The District Council of Coober Pedy has approved a total dry zone across the town, similar to one in Port Augusta. The move is part of an update to the council's alcohol management plan, which was introduced in 2000.
Mayor Steve Baines says the council also plans to work with neighbouring communities to address alcohol abuse.
"The plan itself contains more than 85 recommendations that need to be addressed over the next five years," he said.
"Now those recommendations are broad ranging and go to extending the dry areas to cover the whole of Coober Pedy, restricting alcohol sales, establishing and maintaining a relationship with the APY executives.
"Port Augusta has seen some fairly good results and it's fairly clear from our community that they want the same results that have been seen there, so we'll work hard to try and get the legislation changed so that the whole of Coober Pedy will be covered by a dry area."
The changes do not include those recommended by the Liquor and Gambling Commissioner in June but mayor Baines expects they will come into effect soon.
