Alcohol Ordinance Open to Public

Cadiz, KY – Trigg County officials have made public a proposed alcohol ordinance. The draft regulates the sale of beer, distilled spirits, and wine in package stores and in restaurants. Businesses that receive fifty percent of their revenue from food sales would be allowed to sell alcohol. Hotels with fifty rooms or more and dining facilities may also sell liquor by the drink. The ordinance limits sale to between six AM and midnight, Monday through Saturday. No liquor may be sold on Sundays, Christmas, or election days. Places that sell alcohol may not operate within 200 feet of a school or a church. The ordinance also limits the signs that businesses that sell alcohol may display. The Trigg County Fiscal Court will hear a first reading of the ordinance at a special meeting Monday night. When passed, the ordinance can go into effect January 1.
