FULTON, Miss. (AP) - Fulton voters will decide Tuesday whether to allow the sale of liquor or beer, or both, inside the city limits.

Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

Proponents of alcohol argue that it brings in additional sales taxes. Opponents argue it brings crime and other problems.

The ballot in Fulton asks voters to determine two separate issues: Whether or not to allow the sale of beer and light wines of relatively low alcoholic content, and the same for liquors of higher alcoholic content.

Either or both ballots can be answered with a “yes” or “no” vote.

The Itawamba County Times reports (https://bit.ly/1vZlUEb ) if either beer and light wine or liquor sales are approved, city officials will set guidelines to determine how the sales are handled.
