Forsyth County says yes to "brunch bill" and earlier Sunday alcohol sales

Forsyth County residents voted for earlier alcohol sales on Sundays.

Voters in the county approved moving up the earliest time restaurants can serve alcohol beverages by the drink from 12:30 p.m. to 11 a.m.  The law only applies to businesses in unincorporated parts of Forsyth County, and does not apply to grocery stores.  The City of Cumming did not put the item up for a vote.

Residents approved of the item with a 64.22 percent of the vote.

In may, Governor Dell signed Senate Bill 17, the co called "brunch bill" which amended the state law and gave voters in municipalities the ability to decide the times.
