PINEVILLE - Pineville voters have decided to loosen the city's restrictions on alcohol sales.

A measure approved Saturday will allow restaurants to sell alcoholic beverages. Previously, all alcohol sales were prohibited in the city.

The Town Talk reports that the measure passed with just over 78 percent of the vote: 1,849 voting for; 515, against.

City officials started taking the alcohol issue to voters months ago, after developers requested the issue be revisited.

Supporters say national restaurant chains have been interested in Pineville but shied away because of the alcohol ban.
