Beaver Dam to decide whether to allow alcohol sales citywide

BEAVER DAM, Ky. (AP) – Beaver Dam citizens will soon decide whether to allow alcohol sales in the city.

The Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer ( ) reports the city will hold its first local option election in more than a decade Tuesday.

Ohio County Clerk Bess Tichenor Ralph says the secretary of state’s office approved an election petition in order to allow the voting process to take place. Beaver Dam resident Michael Adkins began circulating the petition last spring.

If approved, a total of nine main retail and quota licenses would be available in the city.

The clerk’s office has prepared voting machines for Beaver Dam’s two voting precincts which have been installed at Beaver Dam Elementary School. The polls will open at 6 a.m. and close at 6 p.m.
