Grovetown vote tonight on Sunday alcohol

  • Follow Latest News

The Grovetown City Council likely will vote tonight to legalize Sunday packaged alcohol sales.

The city council already approved last month an amendment to repeal an ordinance banning packaged sales on Sundays. The amendment also states that licensed establishments can sell alcohol 12:30-11:30 p.m. Sundays.

If approved, licensed stores could start selling packaged alcohol on Sundays by this Sunday, Dec. 18.

The council is following the wishes of the voters, the majority of whom in the Nov. 8 municipal election approved a referendum to allow the sales of packaged alcohol, including beer, wine and liquor, at grocery, convenience and liquor stores on Sundays.

If citizens of Grovetown did

If citizens of Grovetown did not vote in the Nov. 8 municipal election can they vote tonight? And if so, what if all those who didn't vote in November, voted against the legalization, would it then not be approved and continue no Sunday alcohol sales?

I hope they vote yes. If someone doesn't agree with alcohol sales on Sunday, then they don't have to buy any.

And if the local govt doesn't want to sanction Sunday sales, they can always make Sundays a tax holiday on alcohol ...

I heard they were planning on

I heard they were planning on voting last night until they remembered they couldn't grab a cold six-pack before the meeting.
