Residents will act on five propositions to allow some form of alcohol sales. Some residents say a positive vote will help recruit major grocery stores and restaurants to the community. Haughton Mayor Jack Hicks tells the Bossier Press Tribune the town loses more than 12 million in revenue because residents shop out of town where they can buy everything they need at one store.

Here are the 5 propositions on the ballot this Saturday:

PROPOSITION No. 1 — Shall the sale of beverages of alcoholic content containing not more than six percent alcohol by volume be permitted by package only and not for consumption on the premises in the Town of Haughton.

PROPOSITION No. 2 — Shall the sale of beverages of alcoholic content containing not more than six percent alcohol by volume for consumption on the premises be permitted in the Town of Haughton.

PROPOSITION No. 3 — Shall the sale of beverage alcohol containing one-half of one percent alcohol by volume and above for consumption on the premises be permitted in the Town of Haughton.

PROPOSITION No. 4 — Shall the sale of beverages of alcoholic content containing one-half of one percent alcohol by volume and above by the package only and not for consumption on the premises be permitted in the Town of Haughton.

PROPOSITION No. 5 — Shall the sale of beverages of high and low alcoholic content be permitted only on the premises of restaurant establishments which have been issued an “R” permit as defined by law in the Town of Haughton.
