Montague County Alcohol Sales Close To Getting On November Ballot

A vote for alcohol sales in southern Montague County is one step closer to getting on the November ballot.

More than 1,000 signatures collected on a petition has been verified and are scheduled to go to the commissioner's court on August 8.

The petition asks for votes on three measures, the legal sales of mixed drinks in restaurants, legalize the sale of alcohol for off premises consumption, and legalize the sale of beer and wine. Each item will be a separate issue on the ballot.

The Association for the Betterment of Bowie organized the petition, stressing the economics of legalizing these sales.
