Alcohol in Barbourville? The petition is out.

It’s been three years since a petition was circulated to allow alcohol sales in Barbourville.

On Wednesday, Jan. 28, a petition began circulating around Barbourville saying

“We the undersigned registered voters hereby petition for election on the following question: ‘Are you in favor of the sale of Alcoholic Beverages in Barbourville?’ KRS 242.020

The petitions can be found in local businesses throughout Barbourville.

Those signing the petition are not necessarily asking for alcohol sales in Barbourville, only that an election to that effect be held.
