DeKalb County’s late-night revelers might have to stop drinking earlier than normal if legislation passes the board of commissioners Tuesday.
The board is set to vote during its 9 a.m. meeting in Decatur on whether to move last call to 2 a.m. from 3:59 a.m.
“This ordinance revision will protect the health, welfare and safety of the citizens of the county,” says a document presented to commissioners.
If approved, the change would take place at 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2018 and affect all establishments that sell alcohol.
A public hearing is scheduled for residents and business owners to express opinions.
