Model Sunday Package Sales Ordinance

June 28, 2012

The Georgia General Assembly, in 2011, enacted legislation allowing local governments to call for referenda concerning whether Sunday package sales of beer, wine and potentially liquor should be allowed in that jurisdiction.
The law places certain restrictions on hours of operation, the question that must be asked in the referenda, and the applicability of sales in the jurisdiction. As a result, GMA has developed a model ordinance to help those cities seeking to hold a referendum vote on Sunday sales.
