In Trigg County the  debate over alcohol sales is nothing new. In 2009 residents there voted to allow alcohol sales both at restaurants and at package stores. Only 36 votes separated the pro-alcohol votes from opposition votes. Judge Executive Stan Humphries has watched Trigg County change from dry to wet. He says revenue for the county is up between $12,000 and $15,000 per month. He says money from licensing fees goes to law enforcement related purchases.
