Oakwood City Council tweaked its alcohol ordinance Monday night to reflect voters’ Nov. 6 OK of earlier Sunday alcohol sales at restaurants.

Voters in Hall County, Gainesville, Flowery Branch and Oakwood approved allowing sales to begin at 11 a.m. instead of 12:30 p.m.

Moving forward, the cities and county “are looking at the implementation date” of Feb. 3, City Manager Stan Brown told the council at its Dec. 10 meeting.

“We’re just trying to eliminate confusion between different jurisdictions,” he said.

Ordinances must be amended by the governments to reflect the change before restaurants can start serving.
