Holly Springs advances earlier Sunday alcohol

Joining other municipalities across metro Atlanta, the Holly Springs City Council has approved an ordinance rolling back to 11 a.m. the hours when restaurants can serve alcohol on Sundays, provided voters approve in a Nov. 6 referendum.

If residents approve, alcohol for consumption on the premises will be permitted from 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday, according to the ordinance. State law previously allowed alcohol to be served no earlier than 12:30 p.m. Sunday.

Municipalities are moving quickly to take advantage of Senate Bill 17, the so-called Sunday Brunch Bill or Mimosa Law, which lets cities roll back the hours of liquor serving Sundays with voter approval.
