Up for vote a third time: Sun­day sales

The Standard Journal - - ELECTIONS 2015 -

Aragon will have a third chance to de­cide whether to al­low lo­cal stores to sell beer and wine on Sun­days in this year’s mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion on Tues­day.

Mayor Ken Suf­fridge said in pre­vi­ous cov­er­age that the four con­ve­nience stores in Aragon – Triple R, Wolf’s Gro­cery, Dunn’s Quick Stop and Pin­ion Gro­cery – asked for the Sun­day sales to be placed on the bal­lot again, de­spite its past fail­ures with Aragon city vot­ers.

The city added it to the bal­lot ear- lier this year.

“One thing I’ve done is sent a let­ter – hand de­liv­ered – telling the con­ve­nience store own­ers that we’re do­ing what they asked us to do,” he said. “So we’re putting it back on the bal­lot for a third time. But it’s not up to the city lead­ers if it gets passed.”

The sec­ond time Aragon gave vot­ers the op­tion (in 2012), it was voted down by just 12 bal­lots. The first time the mea­sure was on the bal­lot it was de­feated by 4 votes.
