  • The following study was done in 2015.  The economic impact of legalizing the sale of alcohol in Greenup County could be unprecedented.   Certain areas of Greenup County can sell alcohol.  Why not make it county wide legal to benefit more economically? Greenup County could potentially become part of the bourbon trail....

Studies done in Johnson County, Arkansas showed   that by being a wet county,  would have had additional retail sales worth $4,669,133 in 2015 and similar levels of retail sales in subsequent years. These sales would have generated a previously non-existent recurring economic impact of $1,752,867, dollars that would remain in Johnson County. This economic impact is associated with 30.0 jobs (across all industries) and an annual labor income of $608,951. Cities, the county and school districts will also benefit from the development of retail alcohol stores in the form of new sales tax revenues and property tax revenues. In addition to the above enumerated economic impacts, as Johnson County becomes a wet county there will be other economic development benefits that are outside the scope of this study. The perception that a wet Johnson County is a good place to live, work, and play will aid the recruitment and retention of talent for various industries in Johnson County. This awareness will contribute to the ongoing growth and economic vitality of the Johnson County region.
