SANDY, Utah (AP) -- Residents are riled up again about the plan to bring two big-box retailers to Sandy.

This time the dispute is over the hours of operations for a Super Wal-Mart and a Lowe's home improvement warehouse. Both companies want to be open 24 hours.

Nearby residents say the extended hours would bring noise and potential crime to their neighborhoods.

Yesterday, the Sandy Planning Commission, which has the final say on hours of operations, decided they needed more information before making a decision.

The commission will revisit the issue on March 16th.

The future of the gravel pit, located near 9200 South and 1000 East, has been at the center of controversy since the Boyer Company proposed the development last year.
