Brookhaven voters will decide on Nov. 6 if restaurants in the city can start serving alcoholic beverages a little earlier on Sundays.
The City Council voted unanimously July 24 to allow the “Brunch Bill” on the General Election ballot. If passed, restaurants will be able to serve alcohol from 11 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Sundays. Currently, Sunday hours are from 12:30 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.
The General Assembly this year passed Senate Bill 17 to allow municipalities to place a referendum on the November ballot whether to adjust the hours during which alcohol can be served and purchased.
The referendum applies to businesses that earn 50 percent or more of its gross sales from the sale of food.
