The Floyd County Board of Elections and Registration has approved the Brunch Referendum passed by the Floyd County Commission.
Last Tuesday, commissioners approved the resolution calling for the referendum that, if approved by voters, would permit the Sunday sales of package and on-premises alcoholic beverages between the hours of 11:00 am and midnight.
County Attorney Virginia Harman explained the resolution prior to the vote.
“At the state level it was called the “Brunch Bill,” she said. The idea with this was to allow for extended hours on Sunday. In the county, that would only apply to malt beverages and wine. The county does not have liquor by the drink, but in the city, they extended the hours for all alcohol sales.”
The referendum will go on the November ballot.
