Hillsboro council will consider Sunday beer sales

Staff writer

Hillsboro city council members will consider a resolution allowing Sunday beer sales at their next meeting.

A proposed resolution will be presented that permits packaged cereal malt beverages to be sold between noon and 8 p.m. any day except Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, city administrator Matt Skiles informed councilmen Tuesday.

The ordinance, if passed, will not go into effect immediately. If it is passed, there will be a 60-day time period during which a protest petition can be presented to the city.

If a protest petition presented during that 60 day span is deemed valid, an election will need to be held before Sunday beer sales can go into effect.
