Voters are deciding whether Madison Co. should become wet. A special election today is determining whether beverages with more than 6.243 percent alcohol can be sold in the county.
Former Madison Chamber of Commerce executive director Ted Ensminger says, he and his group, MadisonYES!, campaigned to get alcohol sales on the ballot as an economic growth catalyst.
“We’ve had one major resort within the last couple of years," he says. "And we see some hospitality development opportunities at the Interstate 10. We have four interchanges there.”
