COLUMBUS — The Columbus City Council has scheduled a public meeting on Aug. 31 on a proposal to allow the sale of liquor in bars and restaurants on Sundays.
The meeting will be held at 5 p.m. at the Columbus Municipal Complex.
The city’s current ordinance allows for the sale of alcohol only from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Saturday.
The proposed would allow on-premises alcohol sales from 10 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to midnight on Sundays.
A city council vote could come later. The Mississippi State Tax Commission also must approve the proposal.
