The city of Williamsburg is one step closer to the sale of alcohol following suit with cities all across our region that will soon be having special elections.


The signatures are not even counted and already people have strong opinions on the matter.

In just a few short months the city of Williamsburg will have a special election to decide whether or not citizens want to see the sale of alcohol in restaurants, and while some folks think it would be good for economic growth...others like things just the way they are.

Wednesday, the Whitley County Clerk's office began verifying the more than 400 signed petitions turned in to them Tuesday afternoon.

Unlike Corbin and London who will vote to sell packaged alcohol Williamsburg's petition calls for limited alcohol sales.

While some said they would vote yes others said no.

Many are already forming strong opinions about the sale of alcohol in their town.

While there's not much that both parties can agree to on this issue, all sides agree that as that special election date rolls around, you can expect to see their campaign efforts increase.
The Whitley County Clerk says they are already finished verifying half the signed petitions.

Once they are done, Williamsburg can expect a vote around the middle of March.
