FORT VALLEY, Ga. (AP) - Voters in central Georgia’s Peach County will vote next month on whether to allow Sunday sales of packaged beer and wine.

The Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/1il1udu) that the vote is set for May 20 in the county just southwest of Macon.

Since the state lifted restrictions on Sunday alcohol sales in 2011, Georgia cities and counties have been approving ordinances allowing sales in varying forms.

With only a few exceptions, Sunday alcohol referendums in communities throughout the state have been approved.

In Peach County, the new referendum would primarily affect convenience stores, because it only concerns beer and wine, not liquor. Regardless of whether the referendum passes, Sunday package sales of liquor will still be restricted in the unincorporated areas of the county.
