Central City Approves Alcohol Sales on Election Days

N1204P39011CCENTRAL CITY, Ky. (3/13/14) — It has been a year since the Kentucky General Assembly approved the statewide sale of alcohol on Primary and General Election days.

However, the law passed in March of 2013 was not mandatory.

A provision allowed each community across Kentucky to make the final decision on whether to sell alcoholic beverages or not between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Election Day.

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.

In a unanimous vote, and with little discussion, the council lifted the city's ban on the sale of alcohol during the hours the polls are open.

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.
