ELIZABETHTOWN, KY. (WDRB) -- A new beer battle is brewing in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.
A petition is circulating to allow residents to vote on retail liquor licensing, which is currently not permitted under the City's 4th Class status.
You may recall Elizabethtown, Radcliff, and Vine Grove passed expanded alcohol sales last year. That allowed liquor stores to be established and beer and wine to be sold in gas stations and grocery stores.
The terms of that wet vote came with restrictions that left some restaurants dry. Heath Seymore of the E-town/Hardin Co. Heritage Council explains, "We have different size and scale of buildings, and right now you have to have 100 seats to sell alcohol in these places. And we have a lot that have less than 50, all the restaurants in our downtown area are too small."
A similar petition is circulating outside E-town's city limits within Hardin County. Together they need about six thousand signatures to force a special election.
