COTTON VALLEY, La. (AP) - Voters in the northwestern Louisiana town of Cotton Valley will decide March 24 on whether to allow Sunday beer sales.
The Webster Parish town's current law ends sales at midnight Saturday. The new law would allow beer sales starting at noon Sunday. Sales would be permitted to begin at 6 a.m. Sunday on Super Bowl Sundays and on Sundays that are followed by Memorial Day, Labor Day, July 4 and New Year's Day.
Currently, Cotton Valley residents can get beer on Sunday by going north to Springhill or south to Minden.
Cotton Valley Mayor Comerdis Phillips told The Times of Shreveport that residents are going to buy beer on Sunday - so the town ought to be collecting taxes on it.
