Lexington County Council has given first-reading approval to a measure that would allow Sunday beer and wine sales in unincorporated areas of the county.
The measure would have to be approved by voters in November, but it is widely expected to pass because most towns throughout the county already allow the sales. Bars and restaurants are currently allowed to sell beer and wine on Sundays but packaged beer and wine cannot be sold by local retailers.
The proposal passed 4-2 with council members Frank Townsend and Jim Kinard voting against the measure. Council members Johnny Jeffcoat, Kent Collins, Bobby Keisler and Debbie Summers voted in favor of the measure. Two more readings are required for final passage.
Chapin Group Launches Petition Drive to Change Form of Town Government
Chapin town officials have confirmed that a petition drive is underway to allow voters to change the town’s “strong mayor” form of government to a council form of government.
Council member Kay Hollis said an organized effort is now underway to collect the required number of signatures to put the issue up for a vote.
Council members have complained that they have no say on the council agenda and that Mayor Skip Wilson does not abide by Roberts Rule of Order. A change to the council form of government would place a lot more authority in the hands of the council instead of the mayor.
The move is similar to that of another petition campaign in West Columbia, but the organizers in West Columbia are seeking the opposite result: a strong mayor type of government. The effort is a move to curtail extensive efforts by the town council to negate the authority of Mayor Joe Owens.
