Lawrenceville passes Brunch Bill for earlier alcohol sales

Uncertified election results indicate Lawrenceville residents overwhelmingly passed the Sunday Brunch referendum with 69 percent of voters voting in favor. The ‘Brunch Bill’ allows properly licensed local restaurants to serve alcohol at 11 a.m. on Sundays, instead of the current time of 12:30 p.m.

“Economists have shared that the passage of this referendum in local communities can positively impact businesses by nearly half-a-million in collective gross sales annually,” said Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson. “We are thankful for a pro-business citizenry that continues to move Lawrenceville Forward.”

Final election results will be verified by Friday, March 22. Once verified, the referendum will become effective April 1. Information on Lawrenceville’s local election process or general governmental activity or services:
