TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - People will soon be able to buy alcoholic drinks until 1 a.m. every day in Tupelo.

The city council approved the change in a 4-3 vote Tuesday.

New hours restaurants can serve alcohol approved by the council are from 10 a.m. until 1 a.m. each day. Current hours are 10 a.m. until midnight on Monday through Saturday and from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays.

The Mississippi Department of Revenue must formally approve the change for liquor and wine before it can take effect. However, the city can begin serving beer and light wine 30 days after the council vote.

The change does not apply to liquor stores.

The Tupelo Restaurant Association supported the change.
