Coin toss decides alcohol sale vote for state park
PERRY COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ)- Alcohol will be sold at Buckhorn Lake State Resort Park in Perry County after a coin toss broke a tie vote from Tuesday’s elections, according to the county clerk.
Buckhorn voted to remain dry as a precinct, but the vote to allow alcohol sales at the state park ended in a 155-to-155 tie.
State law allows a coin toss to break a tie for individual races and ballot issues.
At 2:00 p.m. Thursday, at the old Perry County courthouse, the official coin toss was held to break the tie. Heads meant wet, tails meant dry. The coin landed heads-up.
