• Nelson County Fiscal Court briefs

    Election Day sales of alcohol approved

    Although the Kentucky General Assembly last year legalized the sale of alcoholic beverages on election days, Nelson County did not alter its local law to reflect that change in time for people to buy beer, wine or liquor on May 20, the day of the primaries.

    The next day, however, the county judge-executive and magistrates took the first step to remedy that oversight by amending its local ordinance to allow those sales during voting hours.
