SPANISH FORK, Utah (AP) -- Some Spanish Fork residents are trying to reverse their city's decision to allow Sunday beer sales.

Royden Hill and other residents are trying to drum up opposition to the Spanish Fork Council's three-to-two vote last week.

Hill says when the same issue came up several months ago, the council couldn't muster enough votes to liberalize beer laws.

An Albertson's grocery store asked for the change, saying it was losing 77 thousand dollars in sales yearly because of the ban on Sunday beer sales.

The change won't take effect until the council adopts an ordinance at a meeting set for October 19th.

Spanish Fork could join sister cities Springville, Payson, Santaquin and Saratoga Springs in approving Sunday beer sales.
