County goes wet, sales could start January 6

By Dave Taylor

Hancock County is all wet.

Voters overwhelmingly approved the sale of alcoholic beverages in the county by a vote of 2,183 to 1,377, with the “yes” vote winning every single precinct. A wet-dry vote for the city of Hawesville also passed easily, 224 for and 155 against, although the county going wet would’ve made a city dry vote moot.
