Sunday Alcohol Sales
After months of discussion, some restaurant owners in North Central Florida say they are finally getting their wish.
High Springs city commissioners agreed to allow beer and wine to be sold in the city limits on Sundays.
The oridinance passed 4 to 1 a few weeks ago and today that ordinance went into affect.
The new law will allow the sale of beer and wine from 1pm to 11pm only in restaurants with at least 51 percent gross revenue from the sale of food and non-alcoholic drinks.
Sandy Flaitz, the manager of The Great OutdoorsÂ is happy the they can sell alcohol on Sundays. " The mayor called, worked on it for about 8 months. Several people from the main street program, chamber of commerce, a lot of us in town, local businesses, people that have been here for a long time agreed that it was the one thing to change to increase the economic situation out here," she said.
Packaged sales of beer and wine for off premise consumption will also be allowed from 1pm to 11pm and 7am to midnight, Monday through Sunday.
