City, county residents will vote on ‘brunch bill’
Officials from cities and counties across Georgia have cleared the way to let residents decide whether they want to have a bloody mary with their Sunday morning brunch.
Georgians in counties such as DeKalb and Chatham and cities ranging from Atlanta to Flowery Branch will vote in November whether to allow alcohol sales at restaurants beginning at 11 a.m. Sundays instead of 12:30 p.m.
Local governments had until Wednesday to place the question on the ballot in time for November’s election, state elections officials said. Nearly 50 cities and counties have approved ordinances putting the question before voters, according to the Georgia Restaurant Association.
