High Springs Officials Consider Allowing Sunday Alcohol Sales
A plan to allow for the sale of alcohol on Sundays was brought up at a High Springs City meeting Tuesday.
City officials and community members voiced their opinions on ways to encourage economic growth in High Springs. One of those things, the city's policy on alcohol sales, may be in for a change, even though it is an issue that has divided the town in the past. Local business owners said not being able to sell alcohol on Sundays hurts them.
â€œSunday should be the third busiest day of the week. It is now our worst day, it's our slowest evening of the week,â€ Carol Doherty, general manager of Great Outdoors. â€œRight now it is thriving on a Friday, it is thriving on a Saturday, but on Sunday people are going elsewhere.â€
But others oppose the change. 147 members of the Soldiers of the Cross of Christ Church signed a petition against the idea. A special meeting to discuss the issue will be held next Tuesday at the civic center.
