Officials in Rogers County voted Monday morning to add a measure on an upcoming ballot that could mean alcohol sales on Sundays.
Rogers County commissioners have been discussing changing the law that bans selling liquor and high point beer on Sundays. And this morning the leaders voted to add the issue on the ballot for a public vote in June.
Previous reports from KTUL state that the ban has been in effect since the 80s. It prohibits restaurants from selling alcohol on Sundays and many believe an update to the law will help new and old businesses in the area.
"If you want to drink over the weekend like on a Sunday you have to go to Tulsa or Owasso," business owner Melinda Kennedy told KTUL. "Some other place to get a drink with your Mexican food if you want a margarita or even just your beer and pizza. It would be great to have the tax dollars here."
KTUL reports that two of commissioners voted in favor to add the measure while one voted to not. If approved, it will not open liquor stores on Sundays.
