(KCPW News) Finding a beer in one Utah city could soon be harder to do. Tuesday, Pleasant Grove’s City Council will vote on a proposal to ban beer sales on Sunday. Pleasant Grove Mayor Bruce Call says although Sunday beer sales are allowed now, a prior ordinance did prohibit beer sales on Sunday countywide. He says Tuesday’s vote is an option to return things to the way they once were.
“I like the idea of keeping things the way they’ve been in the county for years and years, ” Call said. “You know, that’s a tricky thing, some people say why ban anything? Leave it to the choice of the voters…and that’s fine. But, every community is different. Every community has its own unique personality, its own unique culture. I think a continuation of the ban on beer sales is true to our culture.”
Councilman Val Danklef says Sunday beer sales go against the city’s values, but worries what effect the ban could have on local businesses.
“I know that small business owners would be affected by it,” he said. ” I am leaning towards not allowing it to happen.”
The city council will also vote on a separate proposal to put a complete ban on alcohol sales at drive-through windows.
