Restaurants and businesses that desire to serve or sell alcohol require a special alcohol privilege license. These are obtained through a separate application and approval process. By-the-drink alcohol sales are only allowed in full-service restaurants.
Alcohol licenses must be renewed annually and renewal notices will be mailed to existing business owners each fall.
The city residents passed the referendum for the "Brunch Bill" and the city council has passed an ordinance (Ordinance No. 758) which modified Section 6-152 - Hours of sale generally. Specifically section 6-152(a)(2) "Sunday hours are from 11:00 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. as permitted by section 6-153."
