LAURENS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Laurens County Council voted in April to place a referendum on the general election ballot later this year regarding Sunday alcohol sales.

According to the ordinance calling for a referendum, some Laurens County businesses are pushing to sell alcoholic beverages on Sundays to compete with businesses in adjoining counties.

The decision will be left up to voters in the November 6 general election.

On Apr. 24, county council approved a third and final reading of the ordinance which will place the following question on Laurens County ballots:

"Shall the South Carolina Department of Revenue be authorized to issue temporary permits in this county for a period not to exceed twenty four hours to allow the possession, sale and consumption of alcoholic liqours by the drink to bona fide nonprofit organizations and business establishments authorized to be licensed for consumption on premises sales and to allow the sale of beer and wine at permitted off premises locations without regard to the days or hours of sales?"
