City Council to meet Feb. 14 to consider Longview alcohol vote

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - The Longview City Council will consider calling an election to allow off-premise beer and wine sales throughout Longview when it meets at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14.

According to the Longview City Secretary's Office, at least 5,375 signatures were needed to get council members to call the referendum, but a petition to the city in early January had more than 6,000 verified signatures.

If approved by the City Council, Longview voters will decide in May whether to allow off-premise beer and wine sales across the city, including in dry northern and western Longview.
