Bobby Vest, owner of Spirit Shoppe, said he came before the Shelbyville City Council Thursday night to voice his and other local liquor business owners' disagreement with the city of Shelbyville's "sin tax" of five percent on alcohol.
Since the tax became effective in October 2007, Vest said it has been destroying local liquor businesses, as people in the city are traveling to buy alcohol in surrounding counties that do not have the tax.
"We're not getting the volume customers," he said.
