|Atlanta City Council pushes toward Sunday retail alcohol sales|

The Atlanta City Council is considering a measure that would allow city voters to decide in November whether or not to allow retail alcohol sales on Sunday.
Sunday alcohol sales are supported by City Council Members Alex Wan, Kwanza Hall, Cleta Winslow, Keisha Lance Bottoms, Michael Julian Bond, H. Lamar Willis, and Yolanda Adrean, according to a press release from the council.
Wan, councilmember for Atlanta's District 6, is the first openly gay man to serve on the council. He asked supporters on Facebook last week whether or not they supported Sunday alcohol sales. Nearly everyone who responded voiced support for the measure.
If the council passes the ordinance, voters will face the referendum on Nov. 8, 2011, during a special election. Voters will also consider a referendum to extend a one-penny sales tax for the Atlanta Public Schools system, according to the council.
Voters are invited to share their thoughts on Sunday alcohol sales at the council's Sept. 6 meeting at 1 p.m.
