Wet or dry? Knott County will get to vote
Knott County has joined the growing list of counties or cities where voters will decide this year if they want to allow alcohol sales. Judge Executive Randy Thompson said a petition had more than the 675 signatures needed to put this issue on the ballot, but voters will have to wait until April to make their choice. The vote will be held on April 10. Thompson said that this election had to be held at least 60 days after the petition was submitted and could not be within 30 days of the general election, which will be held on May 22. Thompson said it will cost the county around $25,000 to host this optional election. He said before he became a judge he believed the county was wet at one time.
