The Thorsby Town Council held a meeting on March 15, and among the issues discussed was an ordinance to allow alcohol sales in the town beginning at 10 a.m. on Sundays.

A bill was passed by the Alabama state legislature to allow municipalities to make its own decisions regarding alcohol sales on Sundays. The city of Clanton recently passed an ordinance to allow alcohol sales on Sundays beginning at 10 a.m. Thorsby could be next.

A vote on the ordinance is expected to take place at the next town council meeting.

Other topics discussed was a reminder of the town clean-up day that is to take place on March 27. That will be held from 8 a.m. to noon. Also, two residential properties, one belonging to Billy Wilkins and the other belonging to Lauren Dunnigan, were ordered to be cleaned within five days or the council will have to have the properties cleaned up themselves and put a lien on them.

Another issue discussed was a motion brought to the council regarding the use of the public baseball fields for travel teams. The motion would charge teams $500 a month to use the baseball facilities, but the council decided to table the motion until they could get a representative to come to a meeting to discuss the pricing and the reasoning behind it.

The next meeting will take place on April 5.
