Cave City alcohol vote set for July 22

CAVE CITY, Ky. — Another Kentucky city is planning a referendum on alcohol sales.

The Glasgow Daily Times ( reports Barren County Judge-Executive Davie Greer announced on Wednesday that a local option election would be held on July 22 in Cave City. Greer’s announcement came right after the Barren County Clerk’s office verified enough signatures had been submitted on a petition seeking package sales.

A group called Cave City Forward Committee handed in the petition after researching potential benefits of approving alcohol sales.

The group cited Smith Travel Research, which found that restaurants and hotels in Hardin and Simpson counties had double-digit increases after taking similar votes in 2012. In addition, the group noted Kentucky State Police findings that alcohol-involved accidents in 2012 decreased in five counties that allowed alcohol sales.
