Is Whitewater Township dry? Not exactly
WHITEWATER TOWNSHIP Although many in Whitewater Township still refer to themselves as being Walworth County's last dry township, that's not exactly the case.
An April 3 referendum could finally put the issue to rest.
This would be the third referendum in the past few years.
A previous referendum did approve the sale of wine, according to Town Chairman Ron Fero.
It also approved the sale of liquor, but not the sale of beer.
However, the sale of liquor requires the same license as that for the sale of beer, so liquor remains unavailable in the township.
April's referendum asks voters to approve, " … class B licenses for taverns, restaurants and hotels for the retail sale of beer for consumption on or off the premises where sold."
If successful, beer, wine and liquor all could be sold.
