Wheeling Seeks to Legalize Sunday Morning Alcohol Sales

Brunch, Alcohol

The Wheeling City Council will ask state officials for permission to legalize the sale of alcohol in the city Sunday mornings.

The Intelligencer reports that council members unanimously approved an ordinance Tuesday to submit an amendment to the West Virginia Municipal Home Rule Board.

The board is expected to consider the matter on Oct. 3. If approved, the city council would then decide on a final ordinance to allow the sale of alcohol for local business with licenses as early as 10 a.m. on Sundays.

A similar measure on the ballot in November also seeks to allow Sunday morning alcohol sales in Ohio County, but the Wheeling City Council seeks to pass its ordinance regardless of measure.
