Hattiesburg City Council voted to extend hours restaurants can serve alcohol on Sunday


HATTIESBURG, Mississippi — Hattiesburg City Council has voted to extend the hours restaurants can serve alcohol on Sunday mornings.

The original request made by Hattiesburg restaurant owner Stuart Gates sought to move the time to 10 a.m. But City Council President Kim Bradley felt 10 a.m. on a Sunday was too early to begin alcohol sales. Restaurants in the city currently can begin serving alcohol at noon.

The Hattiesburg American reports ( Bradley amended the proposal to 11 a.m.

Councilman Carter Carroll referred to the change from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. as a compromise and win-win for both sides on this issue.

The request now has to go before the Office of Alcoholic Beverage Control before the time change can be made official.
