AMORY, Miss. (WTVA) - On Tuesday, voters in Amory passed two referendums involving the sale of beer and liquor within the city limits.

City Clerk Jamie Morgan said the referendums will now go to the Board of Aldermen for the city.

The Aldermen will then turn it into a city ordinance and vote on it.

"Then it is advertised in the paper," Morgan said. "And then you have to wait 30 days for it to come through fruition."

Morgan estimates the process to be approximately two months, which would be around mid-February.

Businesses interested will need to purchase a liquor license.
