The Texarkana Texas City Council meets tonight at City Hall.The council's first meeting of the month of August will include a busy agenda. One of the items on the agenda will be to consider an ordinance that would establish a special election involving alcohol sales.

A petition was turned in earlier this summer to call for a vote to allow the sale of beer and wine and grocery and convenience stores inside the city limits. If approved by the council the vote would be the same day as the November General Election on Tuesday November 4th.

Neighboring Wake Village City Council is considering an election also on the sale of beer and wine as well. Nash Texas voters recently approved the sale of alcohol in their community.
