Though for only a brief moment, the permitting of Sunday alcohol sales in the City of Statesboro became a topic of discussion Tuesday during a regularly scheduled Council meeting in City Hall. Near meeting’s end, City Manager Frank Parker introduced, for the first time at a public gathering of councilmen, the notion of introducing a referendum for November’s general election that would allow for the sale of alcohol on Sundays. “I would like to get some direction from Council — because I have received many comments from the public and members of council — as to whether we need to bring before council at the next meeting a first reading or resolution in regard to Sunday alcohol sales,” said Parker.
