Algood Residents Reject Liquor By The Drink

The city of Algood will not be selling liquor by the drink in their restaurants. Voters rejected a proposal which would have allowed the sales by a margin of 56 to 43 percent. According to the unofficial results from Thursday's voting, a total of 584 Algood residents voted against the sale of such beverages, while 450 people voted in favor of it. Those supporting the measure had said they hoped for increased revenue and the potential to attract new business, but another group of citizens had organized in recent weeks to campaign against the idea.  Sale of liquor by the drink has been legal in Cookeville for several years.
