LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Buechel residents say an overwhelming "no" to alcohol sales.

They rejected an attempt Tuesday to make one precinct wet by a vote of 83-22.

A new restaurant wanted to be able to sell alcohol and had gathered enough signatures to force the wet-dry vote.

Metro councilman Pat Mulvihill says the precinct went dry more than a decade ago to stop a nightclub from locating there.
