ANDREWS, Texas (AP) — Residents of the West Texas county where nuclear waste is stored and can be disposed of are again voting on whether to allow alcohol sales.
Voters in Andrews County on Tuesday will cast ballots on two initiatives. One measure would allow for the sale of beer and wine in stores within Andrews County, while the other would allow the sale of mixed drinks in restaurants.
The Midland Reporter-Telegram reported Monday that voters in 2007 defeated a measure that would have allowed beer, wine and alcohol sales.
The city of Andrews, with a population of about 10,000, is about 30 miles east of the New Mexico border.
Dallas-based Waste Control Specialists stores and disposes of the radioactive waste.
