    Hard liquor will soon be coming to Plano.

    Four North Texas towns had alcohol propositions on Saturday's ballot, though only half of them passed.

    Plano passed an a proposal to allow the sale of hard liquor and liquor stores in city limits. Prior to the passing of this vote, the city only allowed the sale of beer and wine.  The measure passed with 66 percent of the vote.

    In Collin County, Lowry Crossing voters struck down the sale of alcoholic beverages, including mixed beverages, by 60 votes.  Those 108 voters for the measure only tallied 39 percent of the vote.

    In nearby Josephine, voters passed a proposition to allow beer and wine sales with 73 percent of the vote.

    Also in Collin County, the decision of whether or not to sell alcohol in St. Paul came down to two voters. The measure failed with 87 voting against the proposal and 85 voting for the measure.
