Cave City Set For Alcohol Vote

Voters in two precincts of Cave City are set to vote up or down on alcohol sales. A special option election is scheduled for July 22 for the 2,685 voters registered at the two precincts. The question on the ballot is "Are you in favor of the sale of alcoholic beverages in cave City?"

The effort to bring packaged liquor sales to cave City was spearheaded by the "Cave City Forward Committee". which began circulating petitions in November to get the referendum on the ballot.

Cave City has been "moist" since 2006, when restaurants were allowed to sell liquor by the drink if they meet certain state law requirements.
