GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) -- Voters in Georgetown have resoundingly approved the sale of package liquor.
According to the Georgetown News-Graphic, the unofficial referendum results showed the measure passed with more than 70 percent of voters approving it. The vote count was 3,175 in favor to 1,258 against.
The vote clears the way for the sale of package beer, wine and liquor within Georgetown city limits.
A group of local business owners backed the bill. Rodney Vinegar, chairman of the group, had said the city's former dry status only sent revenue from liquor sales 15 miles down the road to Lexington.
