OLIVE BRANCH — Officials have agreed to petition the state to extend hours in which alcohol may be sold at places like restaurants and bars in Olive Branch.
The Commercial Appeal reports a majority of the Board of Aldermen voted yesterday night to make the hours of sales uniform, 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. seven days a week, for places permitted to sell alcohol for on-premises consumption.
Bryan Dye, Olive Branch city attorney, says the petition will be sent to the Alcohol Beverage Control division of the Department of Revenue, which typically goes along with such requests. Dye says it may take a couple of months for the decision.
