The city of Thomasville issued a statement today (5/20) regarding newly-passed State Bill 10, which allows for the sale of alcohol on Sundays in Georgia.

City officials say, "With the Governor's signing of SB 10, a referendum is necessary for the sale of alcohol to be permitted on Sundays. It is up to the citizens of Thomasville to demand an opportunity to vote for this change and would require the City Council to pass an ordinance for a referendum to be called."

Under the new legislation, counties have the power to decide whether or not they implement the new law , or even place it on the ballot to begin with.
