Commission to consider Sunday sales ordinance
August meeting is Tuesday
Placeholder Image
When the Liberty County Commissioners meet Tuesday they will consider Sunday alcohol sales, which the voters approved last month.
A six-page draft ordinance will allow alcohol for on-premises consumption at restaurants in the unincorporated area of the county.
The proposed law restricts Sunday sale of alcohol to bona fide, full-service restaurants that derive at least 60 percent of their gross sales from food. The Sunday hours will be 12:30 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
Copies of the draft ordinance are available for public inspection from the commission office on the second floor of the county annex building.
In other business Tuesday the commissioners are expected to consider agreements for the county to share road maintenance and fire protection with the city of Walthourville.
The county has a letter allowing funding up to $34,141 to develop a greenway project at the LeConte-Woodmanston Plantation. The plan will include a picnic area and road and bridge improvements.
Riceboro Mayor Bill Austin has asked the commissioners to consider allowing municipalities to buy fuel from the county's fuel depot. Austin said the county buys fuel at a cost substantially lower than what Riceboro pays at retail outlets.
The commissioners are also expected to appoint -- or consider appointments -- to 10 of the committees, councils and boards to which they name members. The forestry board, Department of Family and Children Service board and historic resource committee are included.
