A CHARTER ORDINANCE EXEMPTING THE CITY OF WAKEFIELD, KANSAS, FROM THE PROVISIONS OF K.S.A. 41-712 BANNING SALES OF LIQUOR ON HOLIDAYS.
BE IT ORDAINED BY THE GOVERNING BODY OF THE CITY OF WAKEFIELD, KANSAS:
Section 1. That the City of Wakefield, Kansas, under the authority of Article 12, Section 5 of the Constitution of the State of Kansas, hereby elects to exempt itself from and make inapplicable to it, K.S.A. 41-712, a part of the Liquor Control Act, K.S.A. 41-101 et seq., which forbids the retail sale of any alcoholic liquor on the holidays listed in K.S.A. 41-712 (2), except Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. This ordinance shall not remove the prohibition of liquor sales on Sunday. This action is based on the finding that the provisions of the Liquor Control Act do not apply uniformly to all cities, and would allow liquor sales on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day.
