At its next meeting on August 7, Statesville City Council will consider taking action on the "brunch bill" which allows 10 a.m. Sunday alcohol sales instead of noon.  Mayor Costi Kutteh announced Council's intentions at its July 17 meeting, encouraging persons to contact him or other Council members with their viewpoints before that time. 

N.C. Governor Roy Cooper signed Senate Bill 155 into law on June 30, 2017, allowing restaurants and retail stores to begin serving alcoholic beverages at 10 a.m. on Sundays. Town and city councils can make the change inside their borders, while county commissioners are in charge of any unincorporated areas.  The legislation does not require that local governments hold a public hearing on the matter. 

However, Kutteh said that Council is very interested in what the citizens, restaurant owners and merchants have to say about the bill.  Click here for for contact information for each Council member.
