Whitesburg voters approve alcohol sales

For the second time in five years, voters in the City of Whitesburg have given their nod of approval to a ballot initiative concerning the sale of alcohol.

Voters on Tuesday voted by a margin of more than two to one to approve the sale of alcohol without the requirement that a 100-seat restaurant must earn 70 percent of its income from the sale of food.

Depending on the actions of the Whitesburg City Council, the vote could open the way for the sale of alcohol at qualifying retail outlets in the city.

The vote was 229 in favor and 102 against.
