Dayton residents to vote on state agency liquor store

FROM STAFF REPORTS

DAYTON — On Tuesday, residents will vote whether to allow the operation of agency liquor stores in town.

The ballot question was sparked by Dayton Country Store, the town’s only convenience store and gas station located in the center of town at the intersection of routes 5 and 35. Code Enforcement Officer Jim Roberts said the only alcoholic beverages that can legally be sold at the store are beer and wine, and the owner would also like to sell liquor.

Residents will be asked two questions on the issue. One question will ask whether the town should allow the operation of agency liquor stores on Sundays, and the other question will ask whether the town should allow the operation of agency liquor stores on days other than Sundays.

Selectman Daniel Gay is running unopposed for another term on the Board of Selectmen, and Matthew Cook is running unopposed for the School Board.

Voting will be held at the Dayton Municipal Building from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Residents will vote on the town and school budget at the annual town meeting Thursday, June 15, at the Dayton Municipal Building.
