NORTHPORT, AL (WBRC) - Northport City Administrator Bruce Higginbotham said the City Council passed a resolution Monday requesting the state allow the city to have the option to modify the hours alcohol is sold on Sundays.

The resolution would only apply to restaurants opening earlier on Sunday mornings and offering alcohol.

The request is similar to what Tuscaloosa did earlier this month. City leaders also requested restaurants be able to sell alcohol at 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays instead of noon to 9 p.m. given the approval from the state.

Northport City Attorney Ron Davis said they were approached by Tuscaloosa’s delegation to be a part of their request to law makers. He said this was done so the legislature would not be bombarded with multiple requests which could prolong the potential approval process.
