The property, which is comprised of two tracts, will sell for $180,000 and will be paid for out of the city's Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax funds, according to City Attorney Boyd Pettit.
"This is a great opportunity for the city to increase some buffers near the Historic District," Boyd said. "I recommend we make the purchase, otherwise it is going to be purchased and developed by someone else."
Boyd recommended the city close on the property on or before Aug. 3.
The approval received an unanimous vote from a quorum of the council. Councilmember Steve Worthington was absent.
During the council's work session prior to the called meeting, restaurant owner Johnny Mitchell asked the council to consider extending the hours beer and wine can be served in establishments to include Sundays.
"This is an opportunity for us to have more business stay in Euharlee and not go to Cartersville or other places where beer and wine is served Sunday," he said.
Mitchell said he polled several restaurant owners in Cartersville, where Sunday sales of beer and wine are allowed, and was told their overall sales improved from 18 to 25 percent in most areas.
If accepted, a referendum question would have to be submitted to the state for inclusion on the next available ballot, which would be the November general election, according to Pettit. The referendum would not include approval of package sales.
Currently no part of unincorporated Bartow County allows Sunday sales of beer and wine except Barnsley Gardens, which has a special permit issued by the state.
