OLIVE HILL, Ky. (AP) — An eastern Kentucky city is planning to hold a referendum over whether to allow alcohol sales.

The Independent (http://bit.ly/1dinasH) reports Carter County Judge-Executive Charles Wallace set a special election on March 11 for precincts in Olive Hill. The move comes after residents submitted a petition asking for the vote.

Nici Raybourn, who headed up the petition drive, says she thinks allowing alcohol sales could boost the city's economy. She said noted that at least four other nearby cities allow alcohol sales.

The last time a local option election was held in Olive Hill was in 1971. The city has been dry since 1937.
