Anniston councilor: Bill wouldn't automatically allow Sunday liquor sales | News
ANNISTON, AL (WBRC)- An Anniston council member says he's suprised to see a Sunday liquor bill in trouble in the state house.
The bill would give Anniston's city council the authority to allow Sunday liquor sales. It has already passed the state senate.
Two members of Calhoun County's house delegation say they have problems with the bill. City council member Seyram Selase wants people to call Calhoun County legislators and urge them to give the city approval to move forward. Selase says the legislature's action would not automatically allow Sunday sales of alcohol.
"We haven't even had that conversation at all because again, we don't have the ability to right now. So, we haven't specified exactly how it will look in the city of Anniston. But once we have the ability then that process will be vetted out," Selase said.
Selase says the move is intended to attract eco-tourists to the area, especially with the upcoming expansin of the Coldwater Mountain Bike Trail.
