The Cisco Committee for Growth is asking all residents in Eastland County Precinct 4 to sign a petition.
The group wants the question of alcohol sales on the November ballot.
In the town of Cisco, people cannot purchase alcohol. Perspective customers who want to buy a drink have to travel to another town.
Some residents in Cisco are outspoken when it comes to allowing alcohol sales.
"We've never had liquor. I'm not for liquor," Cisco resident, Nelda Garry said. "I have great-grand kids growing up here and they've got our town in a hell of a mess to begin with and we don't need liquor in here to make it worse."
For those who enjoy a cold one, the closest place to buy alcohol is 13 miles away. The Cisco Committee for Growth said the community is losing valuable tax revenue when people drive out of town to buy beer and wine.
"Cisco needs revenue here too," Cisco resident, Chris Mcgee said. "A lot of people aren't going to drink and drive because they're going to get alcohol. It doesn't mean they're going to provide young kids with it either."
The bottom line for the group pushing alcohol sales: they want that money to stay in Cisco.
"Why don't they drive to Putnam or Moran, or drive to Ranger?" Garry said.
A petition has already been turned on to get alcohol sales on the November ballot in Eastland.
These are some of the claims that petitioners are making when it comes to alcohol sales in Cisco. The group said it would create about 100 jobs and boost sales tax revenue by more than $10 million.
According to state law, the group needs to gather over 570 signatures on the petition by July 13 to get the issue on the November ballot.
