PTC Council may vote to extend Saturday night alcohol serving times

A proposal to extend Peachtree City’s alcohol serving hours on Saturday from midnight until 2 a.m. Sunday morning will be considered by the City Council Thursday night.

The change has been requested by local businesses so they can better compete with establishments in Senoia and Newnan that stay open until 2 a.m., city staff said in a memo to council.

Also, the change would help conference centers and hotels hosting wedding receptions, which are required to cease alcohol sales at midnight under the current ordinance.

The new ordinance would require any establishment serving alcohol during that time frame to install video surveillance equipment on the main customer and employee entrances along with the parking area, the memo said.

Hotels would be excluded from putting cameras on the parking lot, the memo said. But all establishments would be required to keep their video footage for at least 30 days in its original format in case it is ever needed for a police investigation, according to the ordinance.

The ordinance also would require a “last call” at 1:55 a.m. and for customers to leave the establishment by 2:30 a.m.

Currently the city ordinance does not require a nightly closing time during the weekdays. The proposed ordinance would require the 2:30 a.m. closing time each night, staff said.

The ordinance would also allow alcohol sales to begin again at 7 a.m. Monday through Saturday, and at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday.

The council will consider the proposed ordinance during its Thursday meeting.
