One of the biggest issues came to a head Tuesday night as Saline County voted in favor of a wet county with 54 percent of the votes.
A wet county will allow liquor stores and retail establishments to sell beer, wine and liquor in the county.
Before the issue passed on Tuesday, restaurants and hotels in Saline County wishing to sell alcohol were required to do so as a â€śprivate club,â€ť and private clubs must purchase alcohol from a retailer (private clubs cannot purchase alcohol from wholesalers) in a neighboring county or somewhere else.
