The Pineville City Council will explore allowing limited alcohol sales in the city.
The Town Talk reports a resolution asking for the introduction of legislation that would allow Pineville to hold an election to allow restaurants to sell alcohol is on the council's Tuesday agenda.
Alcohol sales are currently not allowed in Pineville, but there has been a recent push to explore at least allowing it in restaurants. Supporters of loosening the restrictions say it would spur development.
Mayor Clarence Fields and some council members have said they would support a simple "yes/no" election on whether to allow only restaurants to sell alcohol.
