Hopkinsville Approves Alcohol Sales Amendment

The Hopkinsville City Council has unanimously approved the first reading of an amendment to the city’s alcohol beverage ordinance that will loosen restrictions on alcohol sales.

With the changes, alcohol sales will no longer be confined to the downtown area, and a provision has been reworded to allow bars to stay open until 1:30 a.m.

The amendment will need to be approved after a second reading on June 4 to become law.
