SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Salina's city commission will consider allowing liquor sales in the city on Sunday.
The possibility arose during a meeting Monday, when the commission approved an ordinance that allows microbreweries in the city.
During discussion of that ordinance, commissioners considered whether to allow Sunday liquor sales. Current Salina law prohibits Sunday sales at liquor stores and other places that sell packaged alcohol.
Commissioner Randall Hardy says he thought the current law was a restraint of trade. Other commissioners also indicated they would support Sunday sales.
The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/117VvWP ) the city's staff will bring the issue before the commission at its June 3 meeting. And commission members said they welcomed public input during the discussion.
