A Sunday alcohol sales referendum will be put on the November ballot for the city of Comer.
Comer council members agreed Monday to draw up the wording for a referendum to go on the November ballot. Council members emphasized that the decision would be on whether to extend the current beer and wine ordinance to include Sunday sales from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. These hours would not include normal hours for church services. The referendum would not cover liquor.
The Georgia General Assembly recently voted to allow local governments to call for referendums on Sunday package alcohol sales. Comer is the first governmental body in Madison County to call for a referendum.
