Liquor by Drink Effort Stalls in Clay County

KSAL StaffSeptember 9, 2014

A campaign to allow a vote on serving liquor by the drink in a north-central Kansas county has fallen short again.

The Clay Center Dispatch reports Clay County is among 13 of the state’s 105 counties that don’t allow restaurants to serve liquor by the drink.

Proponents have turned in three petitions to put the question to Clay County voters. The first two fell short of the necessary 290 signatures. The third had 316 signatures, but County Clerk Kayla Wang recently rejected it because 147 names had to be rejected for technical reasons.

The county commission has the authority to put the question on a future ballot. But Commissioner Jerry Mayo says there’s a longstanding policy to allow public votes on liquor by the drink only by petition.
