AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

Akron voters have voted in support of allowing the Akron Zoo to obtain a liquor license to serve alcohol at after-hours events.

The zoo wants to be able to offer wine and spirits during events and private rentals, such as weddings, instead of having to apply for a permit each time. 

Issue 23 passed with 62 percent of the vote. Issue 24 passed with 55 percent supporting.

Zoo officials say the extra money for liquor sales would help generate money for conservation programs and animal care.
