City weighs Sunday alcohol sales
OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - The Oxford Board of Aldermen is expected to once again consider an ordinance next week to allow Sunday alcohol sales in restaurants.
The Oxford Tourism Council voted this week to support the on-premises sale of beer, wine and liquor on every Sunday. The board of aldermen meets Tuesday.
After decades of a near-total ban on Sunday alcohol, the city in 2011 legalized Sunday sales by the drink on University of Mississippi home football weekends, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, along with Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve when they occur on Sunday. Sunday hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Late last year, aldermen approved off-premises sales of light wine and beer every Sunday during the same hours.
Alderman Jay Hughes says a change would be good for restaurants.
