The Town of Grant has set a wet-dry referendum for May 9. But people in rural Marshall County might get such a referendum in the not-too-distant future.

Sen. Clay Scofield said the local legislative delegation is looking at the issue of a countywide wet-dry referendum. The impetus to do so is apparently a petition that is circulating seeking to have a countywide wet-dry vote.

Sen. Scofield said it would be up to a vote of the people if such a referendum did take place and it would be in the form of a constitutional amendment. But he said the delegation has a lot of due diligence to do before ever getting to that point.
