A change in when alcoholic beverages can be sold in McDonough has been finalized by the City Council in response to a recent referendum. The council voted at its Jan. 4 regular meeting to approve an ordinance extending the hours of Sunday sales of alcoholic beverages for consumption on premises.

The amended section of the ordinance designates 11 a.m. until midnight as the approved Sunday hours and states that “tables shall be cleared of all drinks containing alcoholic beverages no later than 30 minutes following the licensee’s closing time.” The referendum came after the so-called “brunch bill” passed in the Georgia General Assembly made it possible.
