Atlantans Could Vote On Sunday Alcohol Sales Ban

City Council studying measure

Atlanta residents may get the chance to weigh in on Sunday alcohol sales this November.

Under a plan currently under consideration by the Atlanta City Council, the proposed Ordinance No. 11-O-1169, would let voters decide if the city should allow retail sales of beer, wine and liquor.

Of the four City Council members who represent the neighborhoods that comprise East Atlanta Patch — Natalyn Archibong, Kwanza Hall, Carla Smith and Alex Wan — only Hall and Wan are among the plan's sponsors.

If the City Council approves, the Sunday alcohol sales referendum question willl be placed on the Nov. 8, 2011 City of Atlanta Special Election ballot. That ballot also would include the referendum to continue the extension of the the penny sales tax by Atlanta Public Schools and to.

Voters are encouraged to voice their opinions on the Sunday retail alcohol sales initiative at the the City Council's next meeting, scheduled for 1 p.m. Sept. 6.
