Sugar Hill to hold Sunday alcohol sales vote

The Sugar Hill City Council approved a resolution Tuesday that will let its residents decide if they want the retail sale of alcohol on Sundays.

The vote means Sugar Hill joins a growing list of cities in the metro region to agree to a November referendum that will determine whether stores can sell alcohol on Sundays. Auburn, Dacula and Suwanee, among others, also have approved similar measures.

The state Legislature approved such referendums on the local level after a five-year fight on Sunday sales. Gov. Nathan Deal signed the bill in late April.
