2 more Kansas counties sign off on liquor by the drink

Associated Press - November 13, 2016 11:21 am

Voters in two more Kansas counties have signed off on allowing sales of liquor by the drink, leaving just eight of the state's 105 counties with such a provision.

Voters in two more Kansas counties have signed off on allowing sales of liquor by the drink, leaving just eight of the state’s 105 counties with such a provision.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/2fFDs7H) reports that residents of Clark and Stafford counties approved the measures Tuesday. Clark County’s approval was by a 635-333 vote. Stafford County’s ballot measure passed 1,304-535.

In 2,200-resident Clark County, passage of liquor by the drink was touted for its economic development potential.

Kelly McCarty is a part of the local development-minded Ashland 2020 committee. She says changing the law “was a small step to help the community,” and “every little bit helps.”

The Kansas Department of Revenue says the eight counties still without liquor-by-the-drink provisions are Clay, Gray, Haskell, Jewell, Meade, Sheridan, Stanton and Wallace.
