Dawsonville council delays alcohol discussion
By Katie Crumley Access Insider
DAWSONVILLE - The Dawsonville City Council has postponed their discussion on selling distilled spirits by the drink on Sundays.
Dawsonville Mayor James Grogan said the council voted Monday night not to put the question to voters during the upcoming November elections due to logistical reasons.
"We would have to have two separate areas in their precinct here in the city, and they just don't have room for that right now," he said.
Grogan said council members were also concerned that city residents would first have to fill out the paperwork to vote in the presidential race and would forget to go through the whole process a second time to vote on the alcohol referendum.
He said two restaurants within the city limits, Fajita and El Rio, are primarily affected by the council's decision to delay the discussion.
Grogan said there will be another election in March but he's unsure when the alcohol referendum will go to the voters.
