POLK COUNTY, Fla. — Beer and wine can now be purchased as early as 7 a.m. on Sundays in Polk County after county commissioners voted on Tuesday to extend the hours.

The vote passed 3-2. Commissioners Bill Braswell, Melony Bell and Todd Dantzler supported the 7 a.m. Sunday to 2 a.m. Monday sales. Commissioners John Hall and George Lindsey voted against the change.
