Morrow council weighs referendum on Sunday alcohol sales

The lone holdout on Sunday alcohol sales in Clayton County may broach the subject again.

Morrow City Council is set to decide Feb. 12 whether to put the issue to a referendum vote in November. If the council votes to approve the proposal, Morrow residents will then decide in the Nov. 5 municipal election whether they want alcohol to be sold on Sundays. The council must hold two readings on the proposal before it votes. The first reading was held last week.

In the last year, six of Clayton’s seven cities, along with unincorporated Clayton, already have ushered in Sunday beer and wine sales. Sixty-eight percent of voters in the unincorporated part of the county agreed to the measure last November.

If Morrow residents say yes, beer and wine will be able to be sold from 12:30 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. on Sundays.
