CANTON, Ga. (AP) -- The Cherokee County Commission may put Sunday alcohol sales before county voters in November.
Commission members discussed the issue at a meeting on Tuesday, Apr. 19.
The Georgia Legislature passed a bill this session allowing cities and counties to hold referendums to sell alcohol at stores in thier jurisdictions on Sundays. Governor Nathan Deal has not yet signed the measure into law.
Cherokee Commission Chairman Buzz Ahrens says the board wants to gauge interest through a public hearing.
If the county school board holds a referendum in November as expected to renew its SPLOST, the alcohol sales issue could be placed on the same ballot, according to Ahrens.
Woodstock Mayor Donnie Henriques says the Woodstock City Council will discuss the matter at its meeting next week.
