Sunday alcohol sales vote Tuesday

Whether alcohol can be sold in the city of Enterprise on Sundays will be decided by voters this week.

A special municipal election is set for Tuesday, Aug. 13.

The voting for all registered voters is at the Enterprise Recreation Center, located at 421 East Lee Street.

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Citizens are reminded that they have to live in the city limits of Enterprise for at least 30 days before the election and have to have registered to vote at least 15 days—before July 29— prior to Aug. 13.

Voters are reminded to bring a photo identification to the polls with them. “All the same rules apply the same as any other elections,” said Coffee County Voter Registrar Denine Richey.

“All municipal elections are held at the Enterprise Rec Center,” Richey said. “But for all other elections, voters are reminded to return to their ‘regular' voting places.”

The official list of registered voters is available for viewing on the city of Enterprise website, at the Enterprise Civic Center and the Enterprise Recreation Center.

In January 2019, the council approved a resolution to introduce a bill for Sunday alcohol sales to the state legislature. It cleared all legislative hurdles during the recent legislative session and was signed by Gov. Kay Ivey, leaving a final decision to Enterprise residents.
