ATHENS, Ala. (AP) — A Limestone County business owner says the county should legalize alcohol sales locally to bring in more revenue.
The News Courier reports that real estate broker Seth Parker must get 9,000 registered voters in the county to sign a petition to force a ballot measure (http://bit.ly/1AYaXn8). Parker says he's hoping to get enough by the Nov. 4 general election but could also ask for a special election if he can't gather the signatures by November.
Parker, who recently ran for a seat on the County Commission, says Limestone County can't afford to let revenue from alcohol sales cross into other counties.
