2 more Kansas counties sign off on liquor by the drink

KSAL StaffNovember 13, 2016

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.
