The Magee Board of Alderman passed by a five to zero vote to allow the sale of beer, by the glass, at restaurants. The motion passed with no serious opposition.
Supporters of the vote were concerned that the city of Magee was losing a fair amount of business to the cities of Hattiesburg and Jackson. Restaurants in Magee could not sell beer in eateries.
Beer sell in Magee will only be sold Monday thru Saturday, between the hours of ten in the morning until midnight.
