City calls for referendum on Sunday package sales
Such sales already legal in unincorporated parts of Bryan County

Members of Richmond Hill city council voted unanimously Tuesday night to let voters decide if they want Sunday package sales of alcohol in the city limits.

Such sales became legal in January in unincorporated Bryan County after a 2014 referendum was approved by voters, and the sale of liquor by the drink on Sunday is also legal in both the county and in Richmond Hill.

Tuesday’s vote by city council approved a resolution calling for a Nov. 3 referendum.

“We approved the process (starting) last meeting,” Richmond Hill City Manager Chris Lovell reminded council members. “This is the actual resolution to petition the elections board to put it on the ballot.”
