Morrill votes to allow sale of liquor

By Walter Griffin

MORRILL, Maine — Residents voted overwhelmingly in support of a two-question ballot allowing the sale of liquor in town throughout the week.

Residents at Tuesday’s municipal election voted 292 to 120 to allow the sale of liquor for consumption off premises on days other than Sunday and 247 to 168 to allow the sale of liquor for consumption off the premises on Sunday. The result means that liquor can be sold in local stores.

The town had banned the sale of alcoholic beverages since Prohibition until the 1990s, when voters approved the sale of beer and wine at the general store in Morrill village.
