VICKSBURG — Vicksburg officials will not t remove restrictions on sales of beer and light wine.

The Vicksburg Post reports that two aldermen who voted for the ban enacted in 2008 announced at a meeting April 9 they would not vote to repeal it.

Mayor Paul Winfield had supported restoring 24-hour beer sales and sales from ice chests in stores.

Banned are sales of beer singles from ice chests, usually at the front of convenience stores, and on sales between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 2 a.m. and 11 a.m. Sundays.

Aldermen Sid Beauman and Michael Mayfield were both in office and voted for the restrictions as did Mayor Laurence Leyens. Beauman and Mayfield said they would not change their votes.
