Arcade residents will decide in 2012 whether or not to permit Sunday alcohol sales in their town.
Arcade city council members voted unanimously Monday to put the issue on a March referendum. The referendum question would be three-pronged: Should sales be permitted on Sundays? Should Sunday sales be permitted in package stores? Should Sunday sales be permitted in retail establishments by-the-drink?
Recently-passed Senate Bill 10 allows local jurisdictions to place the Sunday sales issue on a referendum. Mayor Doug Haynie said the process would cost several thousand dollars but felt this weighty of an issue should be settled by voters.
