DOUGLASVILLE, GA. (WAOK)-Voters in Douglasville will get a chance to decide if they want Sunday sales of alcohol. Monday night, the Douglasville city council voted unanimously to overturn Mayor Harvey Persons’ veto that had blocked sending the decision to the city’s voters.
The council decided to allow the vote for Sunday alcohol sales during a Nov. 6 referendum. Mayor Persons also vetoed the council’s extension of restaurants’ permitted pouring hours to 2 a.m. on Sunday mornings and to 11:30 p.m. on Sunday nights. That veto was also overturned.
