THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

City leaders in Thomasville said that they had a great turnout Wednesday night at a public hearing on Sunday alcohol sales.

About 50 people showed up, and 20 of them were able to voice their opinions on the issue.

Some supported Sunday sales while others opposed it.

City leaders will hold the first reading of an ordinance Monday which is the first step toward putting the item on the ballot in March.

"We're very pleased that we had both sides come out and voice their opinions. That's the purpose of a public hearing so we can hear both sides of the argument," said Sheryl Sealy with the city of Thomasville.

The city must hold two readings of the ordinance to get it on the ballot in March.

If it isn't up for vote then, the city will push to have it on the ballot in November.
