Cherokee Tribune – Waleska gives OK to restaurant alcohol sales by 6-1 margin

WALESKA — Restaurants in Cherokee’s smallest city can now serve alcohol following a 6-1 vote on the measure by the Waleska City Council on Monday night.

Councilwoman Mary Helen Lamb voted against the ordinance that allows for beer and wine sales in restaurants.

Waleska, the home of Reinhardt University, recently began allowing package alcohol sales, and while both moves come just months before the school kicks off its football program, leaders say the main reason for alcohol sales is to help the city attract businesses.

The possibility of allowing alcohol in restaurants began when the city was approached by residents considering re-opening a restaurant, Mayor Doris Jones said.
