Beer and wine sales could begin next week

Greenville – It will be just a little while longer before beer and wine sales can begin in Greenville. Both City of Greenville and Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) officials say the submission of permits is dependent on the Hunt County Commissioners Court making the results of Tuesday's election official. Commissioners are scheduled to canvas the results next Wednesday. Voters approved the sales of beer and wine at Greenville stores, as well as an end to the need to join a private club in order to purchase alcohol at Greenville restaurants. The measures passed by a 56% and 63% margin, respectively.
