There is a current petition for Jacksonville Alcohol Sales in Cherokee County for voters in the city of Jacksonville.

Currently there is a committee that wants to see this issue go on the ballot. The petition needed for getting the issue to a vote requires s little over 1,000 city voters to sign and then approval by the county commission. This petition would potential allow off site consumption and sale of alcohol, currently it is only permitted to be drunk at businesses that have obtained special permission from the state. Residents who are behind this petition drive see it as a way for the city to keep up with neighbors and also to generate tax revenues.[1]
