ONEONTA, AL (WBRC) -

Voters in Oneonta and Blountsville said 'yes' to alcohol sales June 3.

Below are the results with 100 percent of precincts reporting:

Blountsville:

Yes    263    60%

No     172    40%

Oneonta:

Yes    1,208    62%

No      739        38%

Leading up to the vote, an anti-alcohol group placed a display off Highway 75 with a cross and two smashed up cars. They want people to vote ‘no.' Members said alcohol says will lead to DUI related crashes and deaths.

Oneonta City Manager Edward Lowe said the city needs the money. He says the city will get about $30,000 a month from alcohol sales revenue. Twenty-five percent will go to schools and 25 percent will go to public safety.
