City Council News: Sunday bar and liquor hours extended
By Jim Hagerty
Aldermen voted 9-3 to extend hours when people can purchase alcohol at the Monday, March 28 meeting of the Rockford City Council.
As soon as the ordinance is written, bars, restaurants and packaged liquor retailers will be permitted to serve alcohol from 9.m. on Sundays until 2 a.m. on Mondays. The new law will give establishments four more hours to do business.
Under the current ordinance, Sunday alcohol sales are permitted from 11 a.m. until midnight.
While Linda Mcneely (D-3) and Venita Hervey (D-5) were absent Monday, Frank Beach (R-10), Pat Curran (R-2) and Bill Timm (R-9) voted against the change.
The Rockford City Council meets in open session every Monday at 6 p.m. Meetings are in Council Chambers on the second floor of City Hall, downtown.
