Rincon turns down special use permit
Restaurant planned to have Molly Hatchet play outdoor benefit concert

If legendary Southern rock band Molly Hatchet comes to Rincon next month, it won’t be for an outdoor show.

Citing safety concerns and a lack of adequate planning time, Rincon City Council members voted 3-2 Wednesday in a special called meeting to deny a special use permit for Dakotas to sell beer outside on Nov. 7. Ben Rozier of Dakotas approached council members Monday night, asking for the special use permit in order to sell beer in conjunction with an outdoor benefit concert from Molly Hatchet.

But while council members and city staff said they supported the idea, how to handle a crowd of unknown size was a worry for Rincon Police Chief Mike Bohannon.
