Voters say yes to liquor, wine sales in city
Published: December 12,2012
CORINTH — Voters in Corinth have decided to permit the sale of liquor and wine in the city.
Beer sales already are allowed there.
The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reported unofficial results showed 68 percent of voters approving the measure.
It was the first election under a new state law that allows city-only votes on liquor. Previously, all liquor votes in Mississippi have been county-wide, even though liquor and wine can be sold only within municipal boundaries.
The city board will now develop an ordinance governing liquor and wine sales.
