Allow Alcohol Sales for Restaurants on Sundays in Casey, IL
City of Casey Municipal Code (1976)Title 5; Chapter 5.08.180A prohibits the sale of alcohol on Sundays. We feel with the growing tourism in Casey, alcohol sales should be allowed on Sundays.
It is our opinion that tourists are more likely to spend a larger amount of money in town if they are given the option of being served alcohol with their lunch or dinner. If they are not allowed this option, the people who want alcohol with their meal may choose to drive to a neighboring town that does allow sales on Sunday. Not only does this mean Casey could be missing out on people looking for a restaurant, but also those who may shop at our local businesses before or after eating.
Several towns surrounding Casey allow Sunday alcohol sales for restaurants: Greenup, Martinsville, Marshall, Effingham, and Charleston to name a few. Even Terre Haute, Indiana, a dry state on Sundays by law, allows the sale of alcohol at restaurant establishments. We also believe the City of Casey would greatly benefit from the increase in sales tax revenues from Sunday liquor sales.
