Buford's Sunday sales start March 18

Stores in Buford won't be able to sell alcohol this Sunday after all. The new rules approved by voters Tuesday can't take effect because election results haven't been certified yet. That should happen Monday, so stores can start selling March 18, Planning Director Kim Wolfe said.

Previously, city officials had said sales could start the weekend after the election. Fifty-eight percent of Buford's voters approved Sunday sales, one of many local referendums made possible since the Georgia legislature lifted a statewide ban last year.
