Hamilton County Commissioners today agreed to consider a revote to ban whiskey-makers from operating in unincorporated parts of the county.

Commission Chairman Larry Henry said a vote commissioners cast in June on the matter was a bit premature. The vote was made before the so-called whiskey bill had passed the state legislature, Henry said.

The previous resolution will be scrapped and commissioners will revote next week.
