Group looking to get beer/wine sale referendum on ballot
Published: June 3,2013
FULTON — Citizens may soon have to vote on whether or not to legalize the sale of beer and light wine within the Fulton city limits.
The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports a Fulton special interest group known as the Concerned Citizens for Fulton’s Future is currently seeking the necessary support to bring the sale of beer and light wine within the city limits to a vote.
Mayor Paul Walker says the group has collected close to the required number of signatures necessary for a referendum to be set. By law, the petition needs to be signed by at least 20 percent of the city’s registered voters. In Fulton, that means rough 420 signatures. Although the mayor didn’t give an exact number, he said the petition is between 40 and 60 names short.
