Smyrna will put Sunday alcohol sales on November ballot

Smyrna city council members voted unanimously Monday night to place a referendum on allowing Sunday alcohol sales on the November ballot.

If passed, the provision would take effect Jan. 1.

Kennesaw officials approved the referendum earlier this month. Cobb’s other four cities have not yet considered the issue.

Cobb County does not have any upcoming elections this year and would likely not consider a referendum until next year, said Commission Chairman Tim Lee.

The state legislature this year approved legislation allowing local communities to vote to allow the sale of alcohol in stores on Sunday
