A petition calling for an election to legalize the sale of alcoholic beverages in Anton is currently in circulation inside the City of Anton.
the petition calls for the sale of alcohol for off premise consumption only. The petition is being spearheaded by Anton City Councilman Nicky Jezisek, who says he wants to do it for the taxpayers and has no personal interest in opening a retail store to sell alcohol. He went on to say the sale of alcoholic beverages in Anton could stimulate the towns economy.
The petition which is in circulation must be signed by at least 87 qualified voters before the city can order the election according to the City Secretary. If the signatures are declared valid, the election would be called for next May. Jezisek said more than the required number of signatures have been received.
