ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Voters in Arlington have approved a measure allowing package liquor stores in the city limits in a plan that could also affect wine sales at Texas Rangers games.
Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck says it's all about revenue for the city of more than 375,000.
Critics of the measure approved Tuesday had raised crime concerns.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram (http://bit.ly/1b3KKYD ) reports the concession operator at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington had a temporary state permit for wine sales at some kiosks on the concourse and club levels for fans to drink in certain seating areas.
The election will allow Metroplex Sportservice to apply for a permit to sell wine on a permanent basis for on-site consumption at Rangers Ballpark.
