DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - The Davie Town Council is clearing the way for folks who want to buy alcohol before noon on Sundays.
    
The council voted unanimously Wednesday to lift the decades-old Sunday ban on alcohol sales. A final vote will be taken at the next council meeting on Aug. 21
    
Florida law allows the sale of alcohol as early as 7 a.m. every day unless a local ordinance specifies otherwise.
    
The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/17zaJ4Y ) reports Vice Mayor Bryan Caletka raised the issue in April. Other cities in Broward County have already loosened their rules, including Hollywood, Margate, Fort Lauderdale, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and Deerfield Beach.
