Date Set for Alcohol Vote

Cadiz, KY – A date has been set for a special alcohol vote in Trigg County. Judge Executive Stan Humphries signed an executive order this morning, setting the vote for September 29. A petition by alcohol-sale advocacy group Grow Trigg passed the 25-percent of registered voters limit with 1,679 signatures. By law the vote must be held within 60 to 90 days of when the petition was turned in. Humphries says the ballot process could cost the county around twenty-thousand dollars. Unregistered county residents have until August 31 to sign up for the referendum.
