The hearing to decide what action to take about the petition to keep alcohol sales out of the Montgomery precinct has been moved from 9 a.m. Friday, Jan. 29 to 1 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28.

Circuit Judge C.A. “Woody” Woodall will hear the case at the Circuit Courtroom at the Trigg County Justice Center.

Trigg County Attorney H.B. Quinn announced the hearing near the end of the Trigg County Fiscal Court meeting last Monday evening.

Quinn said he will represent the county, while Dan Thomas will represent the anti-alcohol side and P. Rogers from Grow Trigg will represent the pro-alcohol side. After that, Woodall will make a ruling.

After the Sept. 29 special referendum to repeal prohibition countywide, which passed by 36 votes, a petition was passed around the Montgomery precinct in the eastern part of the county calling for an election to return the precinct to dry status.

Although there were enough signatures on the petition, the state’s Board of Elections and the state Alcoholic Beverage Commission disagree on whether such an election could be held.
