SNELLVILLE – Snellville residents will pick a new councilman and vote on a Sunday alcohol sales question during a March 19 special election.
Tod Warner, a 56-year-old real estate investment advisor, and Chief Operating Officer Antonio Molina, 36, are vying for the Post 5 seat vacated by now-Mayor Barbara Bender. Bender left her post after she was named mayor earlier this month following the resignation of Tom Witts.
Residents will also be asked whether they support the “Sunday Brunch Bill” which was signed into law on May 8, 2018 by the state, authorizing counties and cities to permit and regulate Sunday sales of distilled spirits or alcoholic beverages from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. If approved, Sunday alcohol sales starting at 11 a.m. at restaurants will be authorized as of April 9.
Polls will be opened at 7 a.m. and closed at 7 p.m. in the Community Room in City Hall, 2342 Oak Road. To vote in the special municipal election, residents must register to vote by 5 p.m., Feb. 19.
