Snellville to elect new council member; vote on Brunch Bill

Snellville residents will go to the polls March 19 to select a new council member and vote on whether or not local restaurants should be able to serve alcohol at 11 a.m. on Sundays as opposed to the current time of 12:30 p.m.

Voting will take place 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Community Room of City Hall, 2342 Oak Road. To vote in the special municipal election, residents must register to vote by 5 p.m., Feb. 19.
