The petition for the legal sale of beer/wine off-premise for Delta County and all of the cities inside the County is still active. Many have questioned if the City of Cooper would be included in regards to an election held on January 9, 1971.
Following the regular session of the Delta County Commissioners Court Monday morning presided over by Precinct Two Commissioner Max Moody, the petition for beer/wine sales off-premise seems to be no closer to finding its way to the November ballot.
After over a year of work, the second attempt for a petition, this time with 626 signatures for beer and wine sales for off-premise consumption only in Delta County, has met with yet another obstacle. Due to the current situation, the beer and wine sales will not be on the ballot for the County for November 4, 2014.
