By the narrowest of margins, in its third vote on the issue, the Fayette County Board approved on Tuesday a liquor license for a new restaurant on Vandalia Lake.
The board voted 7-6 on the request from Steve “Luke” and Latisha Mabry, who opened The Lake House last month.
The vote came two weeks before the future of the restaurant is determined in court.
On Thursday, Sept. 24, a judge will decide whether the city has the authority to enforce a 1988 agreement that subjected the Mabrys property to residential zoning.
