On-Site Alcohol Sales in Wolfforth?

On site alcohol sales could soon been legal in Wolfforth if a group of citizens have their way. The necessary petitions have been printed and a group called Responsible Citizens for Economic Development (RCED) is heading up the effort.

It all stems from an empty field off the Brownfield Highway and 82nd Street. The field will soon be home to a $100 million entertainment and retail complex developed by the "West Texas Professional Baseball League." RCED members say minor league teams and all the other businesses that come with them won't consider locating in a "dry" town.

RCED Chairman, Steve Komarek, says, "Wolfforth needs the economic development. We have to rely too much on personal property taxes for revenues to operate the city. We're backwards from most towns in Texas where they get the majority of revenue from sales tax."

RCED has 59 more days to collect a total of 214 signatures. That's the amount of signatures required to bring the issue to a public vote in May.
