New London considers adopting social host ordinance


NEW LONDON -- The New London City Council is considering adopting an ordinance that would hold adults responsible for hosting parties where alcohol is provided to underage individuals.

Representatives from New London will be attending a meeting Monday with representatives from Kandiyohi County and the city of Spicer to discuss developing an ordinance that could be adopted by the cities and enforced by police.

The council agreed Wednesday to pursue the issue.
