HARTSELLE, Ala. (AP) - Voters in a north Alabama city have voted to continue prohibiting alcohol sales within city limits.

Roughly 52 percent of Hartselle voters decided against allowing alcohol sales in the city, which is roughly 12 mile south of Decatur.

Bible Baptist Church pastor Patrick McDonald tells WHNT-TV the negative health and safety impacts of allowing alcohol sales in the city outweigh the benefits of the revenue that may have been generated.

Y. Lee Greene Jr. of Hartselle Citizens for Economic Development tells WAAY-TV his group will try giving voters another chance to vote on alcohol sales in two years.

Hartselle last turned down alcohol sales in 2012.
