Monroe to vote on Brunch Bill that was approved by voters last month

On the ballot in last month elections in Monroe was a referendum on the Brunch Bill and it got a resounding “Yes” from voters. More than 66 % of voters elected to have alcoholic beverages allowed to be served in restaurants from 11 a.m. on a Sunday. Alcohol is currently only allowed to be served from noon. A first reading of the item is on the Monroe City Council Committee Work Session Agenda scheculed for Dec. 3. It is likely to have a second reading at the regular December City Council meeting the following week, Dec. 10, as is expected to go into effect immediately following that vote. Monroe restaurants will then be able to serve alcoholic beverages with Sunday brunch.

The full agenda for Tuesday’s meeting follows. It takes place at 6 p.m. in the council chambers of City Hall at 215 N. Broad St. in Monroe. The public is invited to attend.
