IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

The City of Tucker wants to educate voters on an important ballot measure being decided this November.

The ballot will read:
“Shall the governing authority of the City of Tucker be authorized to permit and regulate Sunday sales of distilled spirits or alcoholic beverages for beverage purposes
by the drink from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM?”

What exactly is the change being proposed concerning alcohol sales in Tucker?
november-ballot-issue
 
The referendum is proposing to allow alcohol sales on Sundays at eateries and wineries to start at 11:00 AM, rather than the current start time of 12:30 PM.

Why is this on the ballot for voters in the City of Tucker?
In May 2018, Governor Nathan Deal signed state legislation that allows for local jurisdictions to give residents the vote to add an hour and half of alcohol sales on Sundays at eateries and wineries.

What is not changing?
Retail (grocery stores, convenience stores, etc.) establishments will still have a sales start of 12:30 PM on Sundays.


The Tucker City Council is comprised of a mayor and six council members elected by the people on a non-partisan ballot for fouryear terms. Two council members are elected to represent each of Tucker’s three districts, while the mayor is elected to represent the entire City. The terms for council members from District 1 Post 1, District 2 Post 1 and District 3 Post 1, as well as for the mayor, are set to expire in January 2022, while terms for District 1 Post 2, District 2 Post 2 and District 3 Post 2 will expire in January 2020.
