Atlanta to vote on Sunday sales in November

Atlanta to vote on Sunday sales in November

ATLANTA -- Atlanta voters will decide on Nov. 8 whether retailers in the city should be allowed to sell beer, wine and distilled spirits on Sundays.

The Georgia Legislature voted this year to give communities the option of allowing Sunday sales. Many cities and counties around the state have scheduled votes on the issue.

The Atlanta City Council voted Monday to authorize Mayor Kasim Reed to enter into a contract with Fulton County to conduct the tally.

Atlanta voters also will vote that day on a school tax extension and to fill a vacancy on the school board.

The city agreed to pay the county up to $17,050 to run the election.

Sunday sales vote could cost Atlanta

Sunday sales vote could cost Atlanta

ATLANTA -- A debate over retail sales of alcohol on Sundays erupted during Monday's Atlanta City Council meeting.

The council voted Sept. 6 to put local-option legislation passed by the General Assembly on the November election ballot. If Atlanta residents vote yes, supermarkets, convenience stores and liquor stores would be allowed to sell beer, wine and liquor on Sundays.

At the time, council members believed the referendum could be put on the ballot at little or no cost to the city because there was going to be an election anyway.

But since then, the Fulton County Board of Registration and Elections has informed the city that its services in conducting the referendum won't be free.

Monday's debate was the second such incident in three weeks.

The council voted 9-1 to pay the county up to $17,050 for the Sunday sales vote, but not before Councilman C.T.
