History was made in the City of Owenton Tuesday after a move to allow the sale of alcohol at some restaurants within the city limits of Owenton passed by 66 votes in a special election Tuesday.  
The vote took place in the Owenton Incorporated precinct, where the owners of Casa Mexican Restaurant said the successful election will help their business stay in Owen County.
Mario Chavez, a part owner of Casa Mexican Restaurant, said he had a good feeling that the measure would pass.
