The order goes into effect Friday, and will remain in place until restrictions on bars and restaurants are lifted -- or seven months after the state of emergency ends, whichever comes later.
Mayor Marty Small announced the executive order Monday at a brief press conference.
According to the executive order, open containers and public consumption will be allowed on the boardwalk between Sovereign Avenue and Rhode Island Avenue, and non-residential areas of Gardner's Basin.
Only drinks purchased from licensed businesses within or near the open container zones will be allowed.
The city follows North Wildwood in easing their alcohol consumption laws.
