Sunday beer dales coming for Madisonville

MADISONVILLE-After steadfastly standing against Sunday beer sales inside the Madisonville city limits for years, the board of mayor and aldermen quietly passed a motion to allow the sales in its November meeting.

They didn't really have much of a choice.

"The board had nothing to do with allowing the sale of beer on Sundays," Alderman Bill Spradlin said. "The voters passed it when they voted in liquor by the drink."

Spradlin was referring to a ballot question that asked if restaurants in Madisonville should be allowed to serve liquor by the drink. The initiative passed by a vote of 985 to 915 and one of the offshoots was that the state takes over the regulation of beer sales, and state regulations allow beer to be sold on Sundays.
