Voters get a say on booze sales

By Kimberly Gasuras -

GALION — When voters go to the polls Nov. 8, or before if voting early, there will be issues on the ballot pertaining to the sale of alcohol on Sundays.

In Galion, the El Tarasco Mexican Restaurant, 214 Portland Way North, is asking Galion residents to give their approval for the restaurant to be able to serve wine, mixed beverages and spirituous liquor from 11 a.m. to midnight on Sundays. Across town, the Jen Cor Food Store/Marathon station, 7792 Ohio 309, wants to be allowed to sell wine and mixed beverages from 10 a.m. to midnight on Sundays.

Kork and Kap is the state liquor agent for the Crestline area as is Ehrhart’s for the Bucyrus area. Both businesses are asking residents in their locations to grant their approval to allow the sales of wine, mixed beverages and spirituous liquor from 10 a.m. to midnight on Sundays.

The village of New Washington has a one-mill renewal levy on the ballot for residents residing there to ensure rescue services such as fire, ambulance and equipment. Several townships also have renewal levies on the ballot including Jackson, Liberty, Dallas and Vernon.

For residents living in the village of Chatfield, a replacement levy of 1.25 mills of an existing levy and an increase of .55 mill for fire protection will be up for vote.

Polling locations will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 8 and early voting began last week through the mail service and at the Crawford County Board of Elections.
