HENAGAR, Ala. -- Henagar residents voted by margin of nearly 100 votes to go wet in Tuesday's election.

Local store management in Henagar say they don't know what to expect from the vote that said 'yes' to alcohol sales Tuesday. They say it's too early to tell.

As for residents, the vote was split -- only passing by fewer than 100 votes.

Some residents say the move would keep the revenue that is leaving the city inside. "Scottsboro, Fort Payne, and right up Highway 75 to the Georgia line, they go up there too. So I mean, the people here that drink are going to get it no matter what," resident Leo Strickland says.

Because the vote passed, Strickland feels the anticipated revenues could be put to good use around the city.

There is no word yet from city officials as to the details of the approved measure.
