Sunday Sale of Alcohol Will Be Voted On If Ordinance Passes
UPDATE: Ordinance Passes 1st Reading By 6-0 Vote: Sunday sales of beer, wine and liquor will be legal in Laurens County if the county council adopts an ordinance up for 1st reading, and the public approves the measure in a vote.
The council has on its agenda First Reading Ordinance #837 - Alcoholic Beverage Sunday Sales Referendum. The sales will apply to the on-premises (restaurants and bars) and off-premises (liquor and convenience stores and groceries) sales of beer and wine.
Laurens County Council will have its regular every other week meeting this Tuesday, 5:30 pm in the council chambers, second floor of the historic courthouse in downtown Laurens.
The public will not be allowed to discuss the ordinance when it is up for a vote - a Public Hearing comes later - but can address council about the ordinance during Public Comments. Sign up at the podium before the meeting starts.
Council also will consider:
-- Contract, Hillcrest Roof Consultant;
