TUPELO – A Monday hearing was postponed in County Court about the legality of beer sales near two churches.
Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson was to ask the court to revoke the beer permit of Garry Waldo’s Richmond Country Store, situated in the county.
The hearing was postponed because Waldo’s attorney wasn’t available for a 1 p.m. hearing, which had been set last week.
Johnson will tell the court Waldo’s business cannot sell beer because it violates a county ordinance barring such sales within 600 feet of a church.
Waldo wants to stop loss of his permit, saying he will be harmed by that action.
A new hearing date is yet to be set.
