Childress Is Officially A Wet County

Childress County is officially wet. So establishments may begin selling alcohol as soon as 60 days.

That's because today County Commissioners canvassed the votes and their numbers agree with that of the clerks office.  789 for and 782 against.

Those who want to contest the vote and demand a recount have 72 hours to respond.

The Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission  says it is currently accepting applications for liquor licenses.
