Larry Bodine of Brashiers Chapel doesn’t drink alcohol but he’s working to get legalized alcohol sales in the unincorporated parts of Marshall County to help raise some revenue for the Marshall County School System.
He and some friends are putting petitions all over the county for registered voters to sign. The petition reads:
“We, the undersigned, are requesting a referendum that would allow legal alcohol sales in the unincorporated parts of Marshall County.”
“Unincorporated” means outside the city limits of Arab, Albertville, Boaz and Guntersville, which already have legal sales of alcohol.
For a signature to count on the petition the signer must be a registered voter in Marshall County and live in the unincorporated parts of Marshall County.
If your not a registered voter, Bodine can help get you registered.
