Cave City Voters Approve Package Liquor Sales

CREATED Jul 23, 2014

CAVE CITY, Ky. (AP) - Voters in the southern Kentucky town of Cave City have approved package liquor sales in a local option election.

The Daily News reported that a total of 230 people voted in favor of allowing package sales with another 132 voting against it.

The results mean that Cave City will be allowed to have two full liquor stores.

The question on the ballot was "Are you in favor of the sale of alcoholic beverages in Cave City, Kentucky?"

By-the-drink alcohol sales have been allowed in Cave City since 2006.

Currently, two restaurants and the Cave City Convention Center are licensed to sell alcohol by the drink.
