However, the law passed in March of 2013 was not mandatory.
At the time the bill was passed, the Central City City Council opted to continue restricting the sale of alcohol. But all of that changed Wednesday night, March 12, with only two months to go before Kentucky's Primary Election.
According to Mayor Barry Shaver, businesses in the city that depend on alcohol sales for a portion of their revenues have been in favor of the approval.
The council also received good news from City Administrator David Rhoads.
"From 2012 to 2013, there was a $91,250 increase in revenues. It's been an outstanding year for the city," Rhoads said.
Mayor Shaver told SurfKY News after the meeting that the city is in better shape financially than it has been in a long time.
"We feel the city is on the right track, and we'll just keep doing what we've been doing to help Central City grow and prosper,” he said.
