Tylertown’s first legal sales of alcohol in almost 87 years will begin during the first week of 2021 after the town board of aldermen completed hashing out new regulations governing the sale of beer, light wine and liquor.

The ordinance takes effect one month after its passage Dec. 3.
Retail sales of beer and light wine to be consumed away from the point of sale, generally grocery stores, convenience stores and dollar stores, will be allowed whenever the retail store is open with the exception of a 12-hour period from midnight Saturday until noon Sunday.
