A measure to allow wine sales in grocery stores won’t be on the ballot for Rockwood voters in November.
That means there will be no wine sales at Walmart.
Roane County Administrator of Elections Charles Holiway said the retail giant led a late push to get the measure on the ballot, but couldn’t get enough qualifying signatures by the Aug. 21 deadline.
“They didn’t start until the weekend before the deadline,” he said. “They got 120-some names, and out of those 120-some names, only 24 of them were city residents.”
