PITTSBORO, Miss. (AP) - Pittsboro aldermen are OK with selling cold beer, but not selling alcohol on Sunday.

Mayor Reda Bullard tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (https://bit.ly/1x2uEfA ) the aldermen met Monday night to discuss the issues and will take a final vote on Dec. 22.

In creating its ordinance, Bullard says the Board of Aldermen looked at similar ordinances from Coffeeville and Tishomingo.

Pittsboro, population 212, currently has no convenience stores or restaurants where alcohol could be sold or served on-premises. Officials believe someone will open a package store in town to sell liquor by the bottle.

The board plans to allow beer sales Monday through Saturday, from 7 a.m. until midnight. Convenience stores selling beer must be at least 100 feet from a church.
