Bulloch County Commissioners have decided to put a Sunday alcohol sales referendum on the ballot this fall.

The referendum on Nov. 8 applies only to package sales of malt beverages and wine. Liquor can be purchased in the county only in restaurants with a license to pour.

A similar referendum will appear on ballots the same day in the city of Statesboro.

The city council also decided on Wednesday that voters in Statesboro also will choose on Nov. 8 whether to permit alcohol sales by the drink in restaurants after 1 p.m. on Sundays.
