Petition Turned In That Challenges City Sidewalk Wine Sales

The City of Mitchell Finance Office will verify signatures on a petition turned in on Tuesday challenging the city council’s decision of allow the sale and consumption of wine on sidewalks in downtown Mitchell.  The council voted 5-2 in favor of the ordinance last month.  486 signatures, which would be 5 percent of registered voters, are needed to put the issue to a public vote.  If there are enough signatures, the issue will go on the June 2014 ballot.  If the required number of signatures cannot be verified, the ordinance would take effect immediately.
