DaytonCityCouncil: The Dayton City Council learned Tuesday night that a vote to allow liquor sales in the city will have to be postponed. A group of Dayton citizens had submitted a petition to place a referendum on the May 10thballot so voters could decide on alcoholic beverage sales within the Dayton city limits. However, according to Dayton City Attorney Randy Gunter, a recent change in the state election code increases the waiting period between certifying the petition and holding the election.  That makes May 10thtoo soon to hold the election. The earliest the proposal can go up for vote in Dayton will be in the general election on November 4th.
