A western Kentucky county is set to vote on an alcohol referendum in a move that could make the city of Eddyville eligible for sales of booze.

Lyon County's vote is set for Tuesday.

The ballot given to Lyon County citizens will have one question on it: "Are you in favor of alcoholic beverage sales in Lyon County?" If the measure passes, it will take 60 days for the county to become wet. Because Lyon County is not home to a fourth-class city or higher, alcohol sales would be restricted by state laws from Monday through Saturday, 6 a.m. to midnight

Rick Reeder heads the group Citizens for a Safe Community, which opposes alcohol sales. Reeder told The Paducah Sun that selling liquor is a public safety issue.
