ROGERS COUNTY, Okla. - Sunday liquor sales begin this weekend in Rogers County.
During a meeting Monday, the Board of Commissioners agreed to let the new law go into effect at 12:01 a.m. July 1 -- the start of a new fiscal year.
Last week, voters approved the sale of strong alcoholic beverages on Sundays and holidays. The new law replaces a 1985 county-wide law that barred the sale of anything stronger than low-point beer on those days.
Supporters said this Sunday's sales may help businesses during the Fourth of July weekend.
The new law allows for liquor to be sold by-the-drink in restaurants. Liquor stores will remain closed on Sundays.
