On Tuesday, Nov. 6, Decatur residents passed a referendum dubbed the 'Brunch Bill' which allowed restaurants to start serving alcohol at 11 a.m. instead of 12:30 p.m. on Sundays, according to the Champion newspaper. On Tuesday, Dec. 4, the Decatur City Council agreed to lower the required food to alcohol ratio for restaurants from 60 percent food and 40 percent alcohol to 50 percent food and 50 percent alcohol, according to DecaturDaily.com. Both of these changes decrease the limitations on alcohol regulations in Decatur to help stimulate revenue in local businesses. However, three individuals - Susan Morley, Terrie Moore and Mikayla Cordell - are working to reduce the prominence of alcohol misuse in Decatur.
