'Sin taxes' bring revenue to Lancaster

A year after voters made it wet, a Central Kentucky city is starting to see some financial benefits from alcohol sales.

Lancaster officials say the city has seen about $45,000 in new revenue so far from so-called "sin taxes."

The Danville Advocate Messenger reports Lancaster expects to take in around $150,000 by the time the fiscal year ends in June.

The city has a 2.5 percent tax on liquor and a 3.25 tax on alcohol by the drink.
