Local Businesses Prepare for Sunday Alchohol Sales

City commissioners voted 2 to 1 recently for the approval of an ordinance that allows alchohol sales in Maysville and local businesses are preparing for the change. There's some paperwork to file and the license is $500 for a state license and $300 each for city and county, but many pubs and liquor stores are jumping on board assuming that Sunday football and basketball games, not to mention weekend tourist traffic, make being open on Sunday worthwhile. The issue came before the commissioners when business owners noticed they were losing business to towns surrounding Maysville that already allowed alchohol sales on Sunday.
