Sunday sales on the ballot in Covington

The Covington City Council has approved a measure to appear on the ballot this fall that, if approved by voters, would allow Sunday sales of alcohol (registration required):

Covington residents will have a chance in the November General Election to vote on Sunday alcohol package sales.

The Covington City Council agreed Monday to place a measure on the ballot regarding package sales of malt beverages, wine and distilled spirits on Sundays.

“Personally, I feel that the decision should be up to the taxpayers,” Councilman Chris Smith said Wednesday.

The Sunday alcohol package sales could bring extra money to the city, an effect Smith welcomes.

“I hope that through taxes we can generate more revenue,” Smith said.

I don’t live in the city, but close enough to hope this passes.
