SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah (AP) -- Liquor laws in South Salt Lake could soon change.
The City Council will consider a revised ordinance tonight that would allow bar, taverns and private clubs to sell alcohol on Sundays.
Bar owners received reminders before the October fourth primary elections that they could NOT sell alcohol while polls were open. They also got a reminder about the August 24th ordinance that prohibited alcohol sales on Sundays.
Concerned bar owners wanted an explanation from the city. Most of them said they didn't even know about the ordinance and wanted to know why it had been passed.
After talking to business owners, council members put the rule on hold and made some changes to the ordinance. Tonight, the City Council will vote on those changes.
The revised ordinance removes the Sunday prohibition and tightens up some rules about selling businesses with alcohol licenses.
