Marshall County residents answered &ldquo;no,&rdquo; but voters in Murray said &ldquo;Yes.&rdquo; Murray, currently allows liquor by the drink sales in restaurants. Those restaurants must garner 70% of their revenue from non-alcoholic products. Voters chose to expand alcohol sales to include package stores, but now, old ordinances must be reviewed and new one&#39;s drafted before licenses can be issued and stores opened.
