In addition, the ordinance would permit licensed catering companies to obtain a license to serve alcoholic beverages at events they cater in the city.
“The Brunch Bill is new legislation that was adopted last year, and it allows for the city to hold a referendum and let the voters decide whether or not restaurants can start serving alcohol beginning at 11 a.m. on Sunday mornings,” said City Manager Donald Anderson.
The 70-year-old building, located at the corner of Foreacre Street and South Main Street in downtown Cornelia, has been demolished to make way for a modern city hall/police department building.
Jenkins, along with Cornelia Police Lt. Wayne Green and Sgt. Matt Arnold, presented the awards to the men, who received a standing ovation for their heroic actions.
John Borrow made the announcement near the conclusion of Tuesday afternoon’s Cornelia City Commission work session. “We’ve lived in Cornelia since 1983 and we own and operate the McDonald’s in Cornelia, the one in Clarkesville and a few others across Northeast Georgia,” Borrow said.
“This project is long overdue,” said City Manager Donald Anderson. “The city has discussed the need for a new city hall for over 20 years. The new facilities have been designed to accommodate growth and serve the city’s needs for at least the next 50 years.”
