Liquor by the drink passes in Sylvester

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

Residents will be able to buy liquor by the drink in Sylvester after a referendum passed with enough votes on election day.

The measure passed with 319 votes for yes over 158 votes for no.

This is the first year liquor by the drink has been presented on the ballot.

Before the election, some city leaders said they believe that the previous restriction on liquor was preventing them from attracting new tourists and industries into the city.
