Sunday alcohol sales OK'd in Amite

Amite Chamber of Commerce unveils a new welcome sign for the town, featuring images of Philadelphia Eagles’ star wide receiver DeVonta Smith and Gov. John Bel Edwards, both of whom as Amite natives.

Amite bars will be able to open their doors on Sunday, and grocery and convenience stores will soon be able to sell alcohol that day as well.

The Amite City Council, by a 3-1 margin, approved an ordinance during a council meeting March 6 that prohibits the sale of alcohol in the city daily from 2-6 a.m., paving the way for alcohol to be sold on Sundays.
