PLANO (WBAP 24/7 News) - For the first time in the history of the largest city in Collin County, liquor sales will be legal and permitted.
Sixty-five percent of voters who cast ballots in Saturday's wet-dry election voted in favor of a measure to allow liquor sales.
Up until now, stores could only sell beer and wine. Now they'll be permitted to sell hard liquor, whiskey, bourbon, scotch, vodka, gin, tequilla, etc.
Outgoing Mayor Phil Dyer says the sales bring in an additional half million dollars in tax revenue for the city each year. Now Plano residents who want to buy hard liquor will not have to drive to nearby Dallas or other locations where it's legally sold.
