WINONA — The Winona Board of Aldermen put off a decision Tuesday night on whether to allow beer sales on Sunday after dozens of people spoke against the proposal.
WCBI reports about 50 people attended the public hearing, but only four spoke in favor of permitting Sunday sales. Three businesses submitted petitions in favor of Sunday sales.
Opponents cited safety and health issues while supporters said selling beer on Sunday would boost the local economy.
A convenience store owner last month asked the aldermen to allow Sunday sales.
After Tuesday night’s discussion, aldermen said they wanted more time before making a decision.
