Voters in Old Louisville to hold wet/dry vote on alcohol sales
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Voters in part of Old Louisville will soon head to the polls to decide whether to allow alcohol in their neighborhood.
The owners of Toonerville Deli started a petition for a wet-dry vote. They say they won't be able to renovate the restaurant without the help of beer sales.
"We're hoping to do a complete renovation of our building and the sale of beer and matching it with pizza, I think, will really help us, and will be a great addition to the neighborhood," said Daniel Borsch, owner of the deli.
"We love Old Louisville," he added. "We're passionate about bringing it back as a viable neighborhood. We've seen a lot of great changes and we're looking forward to adding to the neighborhood."
The wet/dry election is for the precinct in Old Louisville that's bordered by Preston, Oak, and 1st Streets and Burnett Avenue.
Voting will be held Jan. 10 at the Edison Building on West Ormsby Avenue from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
