City gets approval for Sunday liquor sales

OXFORD — The state has approved limited liquor sales in Oxford on Sundays, beginning with Mother’s Day.

Mayor Pat Patterson tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that the Mississippi Department of Revenue has approved restaurant sales of wine and liquor on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, the Sundays nearest University of Mississippi football games and, when they fall on Sunday, Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve as well.

Patterson said he was notified Monday of the state’s approval.

The board of aldermen had voted 4-3 Dec. 7 to allow on-premise alcohol sales from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on those days if approved by the state.
