LAMOINE — It will no longer be just beer and wine available for alcohol purchase in Lamoine.
Voters here approved Tuesday the operation of agency liquor stores 120-29.
Additionally, voters approved the sale of liquor on Sundays 104-44.
The vote comes after a citizens’ petition brought forth by Lamoine Marketplace owner Kimberly Murphy.
Murphy has over three decades experience selling liquor, including her time with the Trenton Marketplace, which she owned for 16 years before selling last year.
The town is eligible for one liquor license. The Lamoine Marketplace will still have to go through the state licensure process to obtain the one but will be the likely recipient given it is the only convenience store in the town.
In other election news, incumbents Jo Cooper and Gary McFarland were reelected to the Board of Selectmen, Brian Thomas was reelected to the Board of Assessors and Elizabeth Stanley was elected to the School Committee. All ran unopposed.
Cooper received 115 votes, McFarland received 119, Thomas received 138 and Stanley received 134.
A total of 152 votes were cast, which is a 9.4 percent voter turnout.
