Small Northern Utah City Votes to Lift Alcohol Ban

Published on November 07, 2013 at 11:50AM

A small city in northern Utah has voted to lift its long-standing ban on alcohol sales. A ballot measure allowing alcohol sales in Hyde Park passed with 64% of the vote. That opens the door for the city’s only convenience store to sell beer with an alcohol by weight of 3.2%, which is the maximum allowed in Utah in non-state-run liquor stores. Residents will still have to drive about 5 miles to get alcohol and heavier beer in Logan at the nearest state-run liquor store. The proposal divided the small city, as some city council members argued that the town shouldn’t allow the sale of any “mind-altering” substances. Backers said lifting the ban wouldn’t corrupt the city’s children, and would bring in more sale tax revenue.
