Sunday alcohol purchases to be allowed in Burley
BURLEY, Idaho: The Burley city council voted 4-3 on May 6, 2009 in favor of an ordinance allowing the sale of distilled spirits by the drink on Sundays, Memorial Day and Thanksgiving. City leaders, critics and supporters debated the idea for more than six months prior to the vote.
With Mayor Jon Anderson casting the deciding vote, Burley became the latest in a handful of Idaho cities to allow liquor sales on Sundays. The state's second largest county, Canyon, began allowing liquor sales back in December 2009.
