Indian Trail, N.C., Voters to Decide on Beer and Wine Sales

People in Indian Trail, N.C., will go to the polls in May with the chance to end Prohibition in the community.

The Indian Trail Town Council voted 4-1 to allow a referendum on whether restaurants and hotels in town will be allowed to sell beer and wine. The proposal was a compromise that stripped away chances for a North Carolina ABC store to be located in the town. That part of the proposed referendum was eliminated, keep spirits from being sold.

Restaurants in the community support the measure. The Town Council has been under pressure from anti-alcohol forces who have been trying to keep voter from having a say on the issue.
