Metro Council approves earlier Sunday alcohol sales at restaurants

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Louisville Metro Council has approved a decision by the Public Safety Committee to allow the sale alcohol in restaurants earlier on Sundays.

At its April 16 meeting, the committee voted in favor of allowing alcohol sales to begin at 10 a.m. in Louisville Metro. The current law prohibits the sale of alcohol before 1 p.m. on Sunday.

The bill would allow 300 restaurants, including Louisville International Airport, to compete with southern Indiana's Sunday alcohol sales.

Mayor Greg Fischer is expected to sign the bill into law in time for Derby week.
