Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander said the amendments come as the state changed regulations on July 25th. Alexander said the changes are mostly administrative but do include allowing Election Day sales and synchronizing city and county license renewal dates.

“In the past, sometimes you had a county that had a renewal date and then the city had a different renewal date and they’re getting those all on-line by county and in-line with each other," said Alexander.
