Mineral County ‘brunch bill” could be decided Tuesday

November 10th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

Mineral County establishments won't be able to serve alcohol earlier on Sunday after voters rejected a “brunch bill” in Tuesday’s general election- however the vote was extremely close and could change when final numbers are presented this coming week. The bill, which would have allowed the sale of alcohol at 10 a.m. at restaurants, private clubs and wineries, failed 4,320 to 4,289 in complete but unofficial results. Establishments will still be permitted to serve alcoholic drinks after 1 p.m. With 120 provisional ballots  still to be counted, there is an outside chance the final verdict could change as there was only a 31 vote difference in Tuesday’s election. The brunch bill was approved statewide in 2016 with the stipulation that each county would make their own decision to have the bill placed on a ballot during an election. Mineral County voters also rejected the bill in 2016.
