New alcohol law has county divided; opponents want restrictions
Published: May 27,2013
On the other side, the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports that at least two of the four gas station-convenience stores in Iuka plan to apply for a permit to sell beer.
Voters narrowly approved the sales last week. Nearly 6,500 people voted. Legal liquor sales passed by 42 votes, and beer and light wine by 73 votes.
Local officials must now enact licensing ordinances.
The state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board controls liquor permits and oversees liquor regulation.
Beer permits are governed by municipal ordinance.
Pastor Tony Curtis of Fifth Street Baptist Church says The Citizens Coalition for a Dry County plans to push for restrictions.
