Voters will get a chance March 6 to approve Sunday alcohol sales in unincorporated areas of Gwinnett County.
Following several other cities in the county, Gwinnett commissioners on Tuesday unanimously approved allowing a public referendum on the new Georgia law that allows municipalities to determine whether packaged alcohol can be sold by retailers on Sunday.
This would apply to retailers in unincorporated areas of the county, where a large majority of Gwinnett's 805,000 residents live. Per state law, sales would be allowed from 12:30-11:30 p.m. on Sunday.
"Based on what has happened elsewhere in the state, I expect it will pass," Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash said.
This vote will be held the same day as the state's presidential primary.
