Somerset To Vote On Alcohol Sales
The Pulaski County town is the latest in southern Kentucky to schedule a local option vote. Residents will head to the polls June 26th to cast ballots on whether to allow restaurants and package sales in the city. The date was set after the group "Progress Somerset" turned in petitions with enough signatures favoring the referendum.
The group says its goal is to create economic opportunities. An anti-alcohol group, "Keep It Dry and Safe", says they will lobby against the measure.
