Regular City Council Meeting September 4, 2018 @ 6:30pm Johnsonville City Hall 111 W. Broadway St. Johnsonville, SC 29555
Beer/Wine Sales Public Hearing Postponed
The City of Johnsonville has postponed a public hearing on whether to allow Sunday beer and wine sales in stores and restaurants. “The City received clarification on South Carolina’s process for authorizing Sunday beer and wine sales since the public hearing was scheduled” said Jim Smith, Johnsonville City Administrator. “A referendum allowing the sales is required to be passed by a public vote. We do not have enough time to complete the state Election Commission’s required process by August 15 which is the deadline to have it included on the November ballot.” “The City of Johnsonville will have to table the issue for now and initiate the process again next year in order to have a referendum on the ballot in 2019,” Smith added. Several retailers in Johnsonville have requested that the City allow Sunday beer and wine sales so they do not lose this revenue to surrounding towns. Johnsonville City Council wants to give citizens the opportunity to express their support or opposition to the referendum. Johnsonville’s regular City Council meetings usually are held the second Tuesday of each month at City Hall at 6:30 p.m. Each council meeting includes a Public Forum where citizens are invited to speak for five minutes on any issue or concern. Council members do not answer questions during the Public Forum but take comments into consideration.
