Two small cities in rural west Kentucky have voted in favor of allowing the sale of alcoholic beverages.

Citizens of the City of Clinton in Hickman County voted in favor of the ballot question on Tuesday by a margin of fewer than 30 votes.

Mayor Phyllis Campbell said she is working on drafting an ordinance with the city council for Alcoholic Beverage Control. She said she hopes the ordinance can be completed by June so businesses can apply for licenses by October.

The City of Drakesboro in Muhlenberg County approved a similar ballot question on Tuesday by a margin of fewer than 40 votes.
