The hope is that by allowing alcohol sales on Sunday, Tontitown will become the place to be on the weekend.
"It would bring a lot of business to Tontitown," said one resident. "Everybody should be able to get what they want. When they want. For whatever reason," said another.
Tontitown is a small community with a big idea, allowing liquor sales on Sunday.
"We could capture some sales tax money," said Mayor Tommy Grenata.
The Tontitown City Council is putting a petition together to bring the alcohol issue to a vote. Mayor Granata sees mainly positives if it passes. "I'm not a big drinker but it could amount to a little revenue and bring people through here on Sunday afternoon," said Grenata.
The hope is liquor lovers from all over Northwest Arkansas who can't buy alcohol in their towns on Sunday will head to Tontitown. "Right now some people have to drive all the way to Missouri to get their booze on Sunday," said one local woman.
The City Council will present a rough draft of the petition to the public on April 28th.
