Logan Council OK’s Sunday beer sales

Beer will start flowing on Sundays in Cache Valley’s largest community.The Logan Municipal Council voted 4-0 to allow Sunday beer sales at their Tuesday council meeting and the law will take effect next week.As expected, Logan Municipal Councilman Jay Monson abstained from voting. The motion to approve the ordinance was made by Herm Olsen and seconded by Laraine Swenson. There was very little discussion in a public hearing about the proposed change.The change came after what some deemed a surprising amount of apathy from the community over the proposed change to liquor laws. In previous years, proposals to change Cache alcohol laws brought strong opinions from various sectors of the community. That wasn’t the case this time.Last year, both Nibley and Hyrum started allowing stores in those communities to sell beer on Sundays. For years, those seeking to purchase beer on Sunday would travel to Franklin, Idaho or Brigham City — both communities where Sunday sales were legal.This will mark the first time ever that Sunday sales will be legal in Logan, as Cache County used to be an entirely dry county.
