"My opinion is let the people make their own choices," he said. "They are going somewhere else (on Sunday) instead of keeping the money here."
Mann said he enjoyed organizing the petition and gathering signatures and said he generally had good discussions with nearly everyone.
"A few said this is a bedroom community and they want to keep it that way and the rest said they liked the shared day of rest," Mann said of those who want to keep businesses closed on Sunday. "Ten to 20 percent said they think (businesses) should be open on Sunday, but think people should vote on it."
For now, the only Highland businesses that are open on Sundays are gas stations and a few other businesses that were given waivers, such as a country club and a soon-to-be mortuary.
For residents hoping to learn more about the issue, there will be a panel discussion to talk about the pros and cons of Sunday business hours Tuesday, 7:30 p.m. at the Highland Community Center, 5378 W. 10400 North.
