No Sunday alcohol sales for Valdosta

August 19, 2004

Valdosta - Voters in Valdosta won't get the chance to decide whether they should be able to buy alcohol on Sundays.

Thursday night, the Valdosta city council voted five to two against a Sunday alcohol sales referendum. They also decided to force nightclubs to close by 2:00 a.m. and have all employees out by 3:30.

And after months of discussion, they decided not to venture into the municpal telecommunications systems just yet. Cable television and high-speed Internet providers like Mediacom and BellSouth have agreed to reduce their rates if the city doesn't establish their own system.
