Sunday liquor sales begin over Fourth of July weekend in Rogers County

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.
