Tontitown is town of just more than 2,000 people, but the city could make the move to be one of a kind in our area. Only three Arkansas cities allow beer and wine sales on Sundays, but the people of Tontitown could soon decide to become the fourth Natural State city to allow people to buy booze on Sundays.
Opinions in town are split.
Shaun Pruitt said, "It's very important that we should sell beer on Sundays because some people like to drink everyday."
Kevin Pruitt added, "It's something I'd mostly definitely vote for, and recommend everybody to."
"(It will) Bring a little bit of money into the town, plus I'm always looking for something on Sundays."
Carla Huxohl works at a gas station in Tontitown that sales beer and wine, she likes the idea of a seventh day of sales, "We have 10 to 20 people every Sunday coming in asking for any kind of alcohol and instead they go to Oklahoma."
"They don't have to drive 30, 40, 50 miles, and maybe drinking and driving."
But not everyone in town agrees.
Cathy Straight said, "For personal reasons, religious wise, I don't think it should be on Sunday."
"To me, you just don't drink on God's day, you spend time with your family and you go to church and stuff."
Andrew Urban is undecided, he said he understands both sides, "Give the business owners a chance not to have to deal with that on their books."
"I don't see a whole lot of problem with it, but you could wait 24 hours if you needed it."
It's safe to say, if this vote hits the polls, it will be anything but an open and shut case.
The Tontitown City Council took no action at Tuesday night's meeting on whether to allow the Sunday alcohol sales.
According to council members, the city must first collect petition signatures, which are needed for the issue to be put to a public vote.
Those petitions go out on Wednesday.
With enough John Hancocks, the Sunday liquor sales proposal will automatically be put on the ballot.
