Liquor option on ballot in Maumee


The ballot in Maumee for Tuesday’s election will include one liquor option for voters to decide.

Voters will decide if wine, mixed beverages, and liquor will be permitted for sale between 11 a.m. and midnight on Sundays inside and on the patio at Santa Ana, L.L.C., doing business as La Fiesta, 1406 Reynolds Rd.

Maumee voters also will select four councilmen from an original field of nine. The eight candidates with the highest primary votes on Tuesday will proceed to the Nov. 5 general election.

Republican Brent Bueh-rer, Democrat Mike Coyle, Republican Timothy L. Pauken, and Republican Julie Rubini are the incumbents. They are being challenged by Democrat John M. Schafer, Democrat Hal R. Simon, Democrat Tom Wagener, Jr., Democrat Maria Zapiecki, and Libertarian Danny Cobb.

Maumee’s charter calls for a primary election to be held when there are more than double the number of people running than there are open seats.
