Gadsden City Council calls for alcohol sales vote

By Donna Thornton/News Editor

The Gadsden City Council passed a measure at the Nov. 26 council meeting supporting the citizens’ right to vote on whether to allow seven-day sales of alcohol in the City of Gadsden.

The resolution calls for the local legislative delegation to introduce and support a bill authorizing the City of Gadsden to hold a referendum to determine whether the citizens of Gadsden support allowing alcohol sales on Sunday.

State House Minority Leader Craig Ford has indicated he will sponsor a bill to call for a vote on seven-day sale of alcoholic beverages.

“I think it’s the best way for democracy to work,” Ford said, of the effort to put the measure before voters.

“Regardless of my religious beliefs, I believe it is best to let the people decide this issue,” Ford said.

The council has discussed Sunday alcohol sales for several weeks, and have been critical of another member of the legislative delegation who indicated he would not support the right of Gadsden residents to vote on the alcohol issue.
