Cherokee steps foward on Sunday sales

There will be a public hearing June 21 in Cherokee County on whether to allow Sunday retail sales of  alcohol.

It will come during the board's meeting  June 21,  6 p.m. in the county administration building at 1130 Bluffs Parkway in Canton.

The referendum could be placed on the November ballot.

Georgia bans retail sales of alcohol on Sunday, but the General Assembly passed legislation this year which allows cities and counties to vote on whether to allow the sales locally.
