The question as to whether liquor, beer and wine will be sold by the drink in Nicholson will be decided by the voters in November, thanks to a decision by the Nicholson City Council Thursday night.
The council voted unanimously to draft a resolution to hold a referendum in the upcoming November election.
The decision was based on a more recent interpretation of the law governing alcohol sales. At a Feb. 4 meeting, the council held a public hearing on the proposed package sale of just beer and wine in the city and approximately 25 people spoke out publicly in opposition to the proposal.
On Thursday, Mayor Ronnie Maxwell did not allow further public comment on the subject.
