Tuesday, the City Council approved calling a Wet/Dry Municipal Option Election on June 1. According to Alabama Law, the ballot must read "Do you favor the legal sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages within this municipality?"
The Council is obligated by Alabama Law to call the election because the city has received a petition with 680-plus verified signatures. The city is required to call a municipal option election “upon petition of 30 percent of the number of voters voting in the last preceding general election.” 370 signatures were required.
