HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Hattiesburg City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to extend the hours for Sunday alcohol sales in restaurants.

The council voted 4-0 to change Sunday alcohol sales from noon to 11 a.m.

Ward 2 Councilwoman Deborah Delgado joined the meeting by phone but could not vote due to council ordinance.

The council is sending the request to the state's Alcohol Beverage Control, which must approve the change. The council seeks the start of Sunday sales at 11 a.m., which is a one hour change from the current start time of noon.

Several local restaurant owners who serve Sunday brunch petitioned their city council members in order to have the amendment brought to the full council.

It is unclear how long the ABC has to approve this request and when the change will take effect once approval is given.
