The governing body of the City of Gadsden, by resolution, shall call an election for the municipality to determine the sentiment of the voters of the municipality residing within the corporate limits, as to whether or not it may determine whether alcoholic beverages can be legally sold or distributed on Sunday for on-premises and off-premises consumption within the municipality.

(b) On the ballot to be used for such election, the question shall be in the following form: “Do you favor the legal sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages for on and off premises consumption within the corporate limits of the City of Gadsden seven days a week? Yes ___ No ___.”

(c) The first election shall be held at the municipal election in 2014 and any subsequent elections shall be held and the officers appointed to hold the election in the manner provided by law for holding other municipal elections, and the returns thereof tabulated and results certified as provided by law for municipal elections.

(d) Notice of the election shall be given by the governing body of the municipality by publication or by posting the notice at the town or city hall apprising the voters of the municipality, at least three weeks before the date of the election, that an election shall be held to determine whether alcoholic beverages may be sold seven days a week in the municipality.
