The city of Barbourville is one step closer to having alcohol sales.
Knox County Clerk Mike Corey says a petition to place the issue on the ballot has been delivered to his office.
He said the petition had 262 signatures. He said he and his staff have determined that 38 of those could not be verified as people living within the city limits.
The petition calls for the special election to be held February 7th, but the county has not set a date.
