People that have lived around Flint and Genesee County most of their lives might not realize (or remember) the State of Michigan no longer has a Sunday alcohol ban in place.

Truth be told, the state hasn't had it in place for over a decade.

Flint chose to keep the ban in place even after it was legally allowed at the state level.

Why Continue the Sunday Morning Alcohol Ban in Flint?

Back in December of 2010, then Flint City Council President Jackie Poplar basically told MLive the city had enough problems without expanding alcohol sales on Sunday morning.

At the time, Flint wasn't alone. Fenton, Linden and Mt. Morris also chose to embrace the 2010 state law allowing alcohol sales on Sunday mornings.

Fenton and Linden eventually let it go. Then, businesses are allowed to purchase the Sunday morning sales permit.

Will Flint City Council Vote to Join the State Law?

Council was supposed to have voted on Mayor Sheldon Neeley's proposal this week. So, why didn't it come up for a vote?

"Another committee meeting took roughly seven hours to complete its work" according to the MLive's latest report.

Flint residents have never experienced the joy of a true brunch.

Brunch is wildly popular in most cities. Typically, it starts at 9 or 10am and continues until 2 or 3pm.

You get breakfast or lunch food, a mimosa, bloody mary or beer and settle into Sunday Funday with friends and family.

If you don't feel like going to a bar or restaurant on Sunday morning, wouldn't you like the convenience of stopping at the store to get what you need for hosting at home?

Hopefully that's about to change for the better... for businesses and residents.
