Kanawha County Won't Vote on Bill to Serve Alcohol Sundays

Brunch, Alcohol

Kanawha County residents will not have the chance to vote on approving the sale of alcohol at restaurants, clubs and wineries before 1p.m. on Sundays.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports that the Kanawha County Commission voted Thursday to not put “the brunch bill” on the ballot.

Officials say only businesses in Charleston have expressed interest in approving alcohol sales Sunday mornings.

Commission President Kent Carper says he would put a bill on the ballot if businesses outside the city expressed more interest in it.

The idea to sell alcohol Sunday morning came from Shepherdstown, where restaurants have been able to serve alcohol Sundays since mid-May.
