City of Childersburg no longer “dry” on Sundays

SHARE NOW

CHILDERSBURG,Ala. – On Tuesday the people of Childersburg voted to allow Sunday alcohol sales.

After seeing a rather low turnout, 318 overall, as Greater Coosa Valley Chamber President and CEO Tom Roberts predicted in an interview with SylacaugaNews.com on Monday, Sunday alcohol sales prevailed with 225 people voting to allow Sunday sales while 93 people voted against Sunday sales.

Many are excited that tax dollars will now stay in Childersburg after people have been forced to leave America’s oldest city and buy in other areas, but Mayor Ken Wesson said Sunday sales tax revenue will not be significant. He does believe, however, this could help new merchants come to his city.

“Some won’t even consider coming without Sunday sales, and its a regular question that comes up,” Wesson said. “I can’t say it will kill a deal, but I know it will enhance our chances if it means that much to businesses.”

Surrounding municipalities already allow Sunday alcohol sales. Sylacauga approved Sunday sales in 2015.
