This comes after Governor Roy Cooper recently signed Senate Bill 155, also known as the “Brunch Bill”, into law, letting local governments decide whether or not to allow it.

On July 18, Wilmington City Council will consider the Brunch Bill.

Other cities, like Surf City, Raleigh and Carrboro have already approved the change.
