St. Clair County communities vote to allow Sunday alcohol sales

BIRMINGHAM (TAB, bizjournals.com) — Three St. Clair County communities voted Aug. 11 to allow Sunday alcohol sales, citing financial benefits to local economies for the reason to pass the legislative measures.

In Riverside, Sunday alcohol sales passed 203–73 on the ballot and the City Council reported that it plans to ratify the vote after their next meeting. Moody voters approved the sales 367–187 and in Pell City, where the most voters showed up, Sunday sales were supported 1,213 to 659.

Joe Godfrey, executive director of Alabama Citizens Action Program (ALCAP), has previously told The Alabama Baptist that it’s a disappointment when communities vote in favor of Sunday alcohol sales but that ALCAP remains available to work with communities yet to face such votes.
