Sandy Springs City Council will soon decide whether to put Sunday alcohol sales on the ballot and a decision could come as early as Aug. 2, councilman Chip Collins said on July 22.

Dist. 3 Councilman Chip Collins

Collins and Sandy Springs Mayor Eva Galambos said council members could decide to put the issue of whether to sell alcohol in stores before voters in a November ballot. Galambos said it depends on whether there will be a vote on a penny sales tax for education.

“We did make a decision not to hold a special election for Sunday alcohol sales, but I also think the consensus from the council is we would get it added to whatever is the next election,” Collins said.

The Facebook group Sandy Springs, GA for Sunday Alcohol Sales announced on July 22 that the council would soon consider the issue.
