Relating to Pike County; to authorize the Pike County Commission to provide for the sale of alcoholic beverages on Sundays outside of the corporate limits of the City of Troy under certain conditions by properly licensed retail licensees serving the general public; and to authorize a referendum.

Section 1

The Pike County Commission, by resolution of the commission or pursuant to a referendum as provided for in Section 2, may regulate and permit the sale of alcoholic beverages outside of the corporate limits of the City of Troy for on-premises and off-premises consumption after 12:00 p.m. on Sundays, as determined by the county commission, by properly licensed retail licensees of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board serving the general public.

Section 2

Section 1 may be conditioned on approval at a referendum election of the qualified electors of the county outside of the corporate limits of the City of Troy who vote in an election to be held on a day designated by the county commission. If the Pike County Commission chooses to call for the approval of this act by a referendum election, the county commission cannot later approve this act by resolution and this act can only be approved by a referendum election as provided in this section. If a referendum is called for, the notice of the election shall be given by the county commission, and the election shall be held, conducted, and the results canvassed in the manner as other county elections. The election shall be held in conjunction with a regularly scheduled state or local election to be held in the county. The question shall be, "Do you favor the adoption of Act ___, of the ____ Session of the Alabama Legislature authorizing the sale of alcoholic beverages after 12:00 p.m. on Sundays outside of the corporate limits of the City of Troy? Yes ( ) No ( )." The county shall pay any costs and expenses not otherwise reimbursed by a governmental agency which are incidental to the election. If a majority of the votes cast in the election are "Yes," Section 1 shall become operative immediately. If the majority of the votes are "No," a second election may not be held less than one year after the prior election.

Section 3

This act shall become effective immediately following its passage and approval by the Governor, or its otherwise becoming law.
