Georgetown Votes to Expand Alcohol Sales

Aug 1, 2012

Georgetown residents voted Tuesday to expand alcohol sales and thus end beer runs to wet territories across the county line. In unofficial returns, the vote was 3,175 to 1,258 in favor of allowing package sales of alcohol at groceries and convenience stores, a margin of 71.6 percent to 28.4 percent.
