Who's On Board With The Brunch Bill, Who's Not?

Brunch Bill Passes in Greensboro

Governor Roy Cooper may have signed the "Brunch Bill" into law for North Carolina, but now it's up to the local governments to decide whether or not they're on board. 

County commissioners and city councils may now pass ordinances allowing restaurants and retailers to sell alcohol starting at 10 a.m. on Sundays, instead of noon. 

So, here's where you can get that Sunday mimosa earlier...and where you can't...for now. 

WINSTON-SALEM - Passed.

Winston-Salem became the latest Triad city to pass the "brunch bill" during a city council meeting on Monday, August 21. Mayor Allen Joines said the vote was unanimous and earlier Sunday sales can begin this Sunday. 

GREENSBORO - Passed.

LEXINGTON - Passed.

Lexington Mayor Newell Clark confirmed the passing of the brunch bill in a tweet on August 14. 

 

ALAMANCE COUNTY - Not Right Now

Commissioners voted on the issue on Monday, Sept. 18th. One commissioner was absent, so the vote was a tie 2-2, which means no earlier alcohol in the county for now. Commissioners can bring up the ordinance again but not until the next meeting in October.

 

DAVIDSON COUNTY - Wait and see.

Earlier Sunday alcohol sales aren't on Davidson County's radar...right now, according to Commissioner Don Truell. He says he believes commissioners will wait and see what the cities in Davidson County do first. 

Truell says the brunch bill isn't on any upcoming agenda, but that doesn't mean a commissioner won't have it added as they get closer to a meeting date. 

EDEN - "Not a high priority."

A statement sent to us from City of Eden Mayor Wayne Tuggle: "In small municipalities there are few eating establishments that even sell alcohol, so this issue is not a high priority like the larger municipalities throughout the state." 

We are reaching out to other cities and counties in our area about the brunch bill. Keep checking this list to find out what your local leaders are doing!
