The city police chief cites numerous problems with a local Sunoco station, including employees selling alcohol to minors and the store paying cash for winnings on gambling machines.
Winder's police chief is asking city council members to consider revoking a local convenience store's alcohol license.

According to the letter, the Winder Police Department received information from a confidential informant June 23 that the convenience store was paying …

The town council’s approval of alcohol referendum in March will soon go before local voters, and a second referendum may follow on the November ballot.
While many towns and cities in Barrow County took the question regarding Sunday alcohol sales before voters in November 2011, the Bethlehem Town Council made the decision in March 2012 to let local voters have their say on the matter during the July 31 local and state primary elections.
