The Grow Murray campaign filed the petition several weeks ago requesting the vote. They needed at least 627 signatures for it to be certified. Coursey says the May Primary election will cause some problems for the local option election. The alcohol sales vote cannot occur within 30 days of a regularly scheduled election.

Severns says the Keep it Out petition would give residents two choices.&nbsp; He says,</p><p>&ldquo;It will leave alcohol sales the way they are currently and that is for liquor by the drink or, if the city votes no on that, then it would do away with those alcohol sales.&rdquo;</p> Thu, 23 Feb 2012 21:48:52 +0000 Shelly Baskin 17026 at http://wkms.org Groups Go Head to Head on Issue of Packaged Alcohol Sales
