CAVE CITY, Ky. (WBKO) -- A south central Kentucky city has voted to allow liquor in stores sales.
Cave City discussed the option of packaged liquor sales since November of 2013. Tuesday the people of the city voted yes by a vote of 228 to 127 unofficially. Voting took place at the Cave City Convention Center until 6:00 PM.
City officials said the result of Tuesday's vote was entirely in the hands of the community.
"This is a decision that is totally up to the citizens of Cave City. And with that said, tonight (Tuesday) we'll get that say. Everybody is jumping in and getting a piece of the pie so to speak. I think definitely, it could set a precedent for other towns or counties in our area," said Cave City Mayor, Dwayne Hatcher.
The mayor said though the vote has passed, legally there is still a lot to take care of before liquor sales begin.
