CEDAR HILLS, Utah (AP) -- Cedar Hills residents have rejected initiatives that would have prohibited a store -- should the community get one -- to be on open on Sundays or sell beer.
The voters approved a proposal to issue long-term bonds to pay off a golf course that has failed to pay for itself. City officials would like to sell the course, but have not been able to find a buyer willing to pay the amount owed.
The bans on beer and Sunday sales received support from less than 40 percent of the voters.
The city has been divided by the two issues since the City Council decided three months ago not to ban alcohol sales or require businesses to close on Sundays.
The action came while it appeared that Cedar Hills would get its first supermarket -- a Smith's Food & Drug. The company dropped its plans for a Cedar Hills store.
While the plans still were under way, a group of residents formed The Coalition to Preserve Cedar Hills and circulated petitions to get the initiatives on the ballot.
