BAN ON ALCOHOL IN CITY LIMITS IS LIFTED

 

UPDATED AS OF 11:30AM WEDNESDAY

 

The vote counting continued late into the night in Bond County.  And after all the pre-votes and absentee votes were counted there are new totals for election night in Bond County.  The pre and absentee votes did not change any of the winners in Tuesday’s election but the final tally of votes did change.  What follows is the final vote count, but like all elections nothing is official for up to 14 days.  The Alcohol referendum for the City of Greenville got 1,646 no's and 850 yes votes. Since a no vote means the ban on alcohol sales in Greenville will not continue, the sale of alcohol will be permitted in Greenville.
