CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Kanawha County residents will not have the opportunity to vote on approving the sale of alcohol at restaurants, clubs and wineries before 1 p.m. on Sundays.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/20XiM8U) reports that the Kanawha County Commission voted Thursday to not put “the brunch bill” on the ballot.

Commission President Kent Carper and Commissioner Dave Hardy said that only businesses in Charleston have expressed interest in approving alcohol sales Sunday mornings.

Carper said he would put a bill on the ballot if businesses outside the city expressed more interest in it.

“They have to come in and say that they want us to do it,” Carper said about restaurants outside of Charleston that would like to serve alcohol Sundays before 1 p.m.

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