Salina City Commissioners will consider allowing Sunday liquor sales. At their Monday meeting commissioners will discuss the topic, and consider an ordinance.
The issue first arose back on May 20th when the commission was discussing a change in the law to allow packaged liquor sales at a new microbrewery under construction in Downtown Salina.
Current Salina law prohibits Sunday sales at liquor stores and other places that sell packaged alcohol.
Commissioner Randall Hardy was a proponent of the change, saying that he thought the current law was a restraint of trade. Other commissioners also indicated they would support Sunday sales.
The proposed ordinance would allow Sunday alcohol sales. Three days would be exempt, though. Liquor sales would not be allowed on Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
