Sunday morning mimosas may make the menu of Watkinsville restaurants, but only if voters approve.
The city of Watkinsville will vote in July on whether to put a referendum to roll back the hours for Sunday alcohol sales on its Tuesday, Nov. 5 ballot.
Currently, the earliest time that restaurants in Watkinsville and unincorporated parts of Oconee County can serve alcohol on Sundays is 12:30 p.m.
Last year, Georgia legislators passed a measure called the Brunch Bill, which allows local governments to vote on allowing restaurants to serve alcoholic drinks at 11 a.m. on Sundays, a time that would be consistent with the remaining six days of the week.
