IUKA – The Tishomingo County Board of Supervisors in a split vote approved Sunday sale of beer in the county.

Activist Charles “Tubby” Aldridge had launched a petition drive to call for the vote, and area marina owners also added their voices to the request for an extension of hours for sales.

The date for an extension of hours will be set after a legal notice of the proposal is published for three weeks, said Deputy Chancery Clerk Lynn West.

New Sunday beer sale hours will be 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
