The Marion County Fiscal Court voted 3-1 Thursday to approve the second reading of an ordinance that would allow alcohol sales on Sunday and expanded sales hours throughout the week.
The first reading of the proposed ordinance was approved, 3-2, at the court's Aug. 6. Magistrates Larry Caldwell, John Arthur Elder III and Steve Masterson voted in favor of the ordinance. Magistrates Roger "Cotton" Smothers and Jackie Wicker voted against the ordinance.
Smothers was not present at the Aug. 20 fiscal court meeting.
The proposed county ordinance is similar to the ordinance approved July 15 by the Lebanon City Council. The proposed county ordinance would allow alcohol sales between 6 a.m. Monday to Saturday through 1 a.m. the following morning. The ordinance would also allow alcohol sales from noon Sundays until 1 a.m. Monday morning.
The ordinance must be approved published before it is considered official.
