      Could Sunday alcohol sales bring jobs to Tifton?


      The sale of alcohol on Sunday in Tifton is illegal, but that could all change come this week.

      If the vote goes through some say, it could mean more jobs.

      Sanjay Patel is a manager at the BP Gas Station in Tifton and knows first hand what it's like to struggle to make ends meet.

      In the City of Tifton, the sell of alcohol on Sunday is illegal, but Patel hopes that will change soon.

      Sanjay Patel says, "more labor, give them more hours and everything too."

      He says since sales are so slow on Sunday's he can't afford to hire extra help.

      Darren Ethridge agrees saying folks won't have to go far to get a drink.

      "It's a good possibility it might save some people lives traveling up and down the road drinking and driving," says Darren Ethridge.

      Voters will be able to cast their vote on Tuesday.
