TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville City Council and Mayor Buddy Choat discussed an amendment to the city’s alcohol ordinance during its workshop on Thursday, Dec. 3, 2020.
The amendment would allow businesses to begin selling alcoholic beverages at 10 a.m. on Sundays, instead of at noon.
A statewide law prohibits the sale of alcohol after 2 a.m. on Sundays and each municipality has an option of when to allow sales to resume. Other cities, such as Birmingham, Mobile and Huntsville allow sales to resume at 10 a.m. on Sundays.
Council members discussed moving the time back two hours in order to allow local restaurants to offer brunch beverages. The beverages would be allowed only for on-premise consumption.
According to the amendment, local business owners have requested the change for Trussville and some council members believe it could help with the recruitment of more breakfast and brunch restaurants.
For every other day of the week, it will remain illegal to sell alcohol between the hours of 2 a.m. and 8 a.m.
The council will vote on the amendment at its regular meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2020.
