It looks like people in Barbourville will be voting on alcohol sales after the first of the year.
The Knox County Fiscal Court decided last night to hold the local option election on February 7th.
A petition was turned in to county clerk Mike Corey and he said there were enough signatures to have the election.
A petition was also delivered to the Whitley and Knox County Clerk calling for a special election in the city of Corbin to sell packaged liquor.
The signatures on those petitions have not been counted.
Knox County Clerk Mike Corey says he thinks there are more than 800.
