A western Kentucky county has approved an alcohol referendum in a move that makes the city of Eddyville eligible to sell booze.
The Paducah Sun reports that Lyon County voters approved the measure Tuesday by 258 ballots. Lyon County Clerk Sarah DeFew said final unofficial vote totals were 1,530 for sales and 1,272 against them.
The ballot given to Lyon County citizens had one question on it: "Are you in favor of alcoholic beverage sales in Lyon County?" It will allow both restaurant and package sales in liquor stores.
It will take 60 days from the time the election results are certified until alcohol is allowed to be sold.
