MILLEDGEVILLE — Baldwin County Commissioners approved wording on a referendum Tuesday night that, if approved on an upcoming ballot, will allow local Sunday alcohol sales.

The resolution for the referendum will now be submitted by county clerk Cindy Cunnigham to Elections Superintendent Todd Blackwell calling for the question concerning Sunday alcohol sales by retailers of malt beverages, wine and distilled spirits between 12:30 and 11:30 p.m. to be added to Baldwin’s November general election ballot.

Bubba Williams, District 5, did question the 30 minute gap in late night sales. County attorney David McRee said the times where determined by the state law.

If passed, Baldwin County will be authorized to permit and regulate package sales on Sundays effective Dec. 1.
