The Waleska City Council will postpone voting on beer and wine sales by the drink, though the measure was originally scheduled to be discussed at Monday night’s meeting, according to the city manager.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 8891 Fincher Road.

City Manager Aimee Abernathy said the draft ordinance is not yet ready and requires additional changes to make sure definitions of alcohol sales reflect the mayor and council’s intent.

Abernathy said the council plans to take up the matter again at its next meeting, which will be May 20.

The council voted at its April 1 meeting to draft the proposed pouring ordinance, Abernathy said.

Just last year, Waleska approved packaged beer and wine sales, making the small town the last city in Cherokee County to do so.

The council is set to discuss a solid waste ordinance on first reading, adopting a regulatory fee schedule and waiving a water tap fee for Cherokee County Parks and Recreation for Waleska Park improvements.
