Election Day failed to bring an immediate resolution to a year-long dispute over the sale of alcohol in Hyde Park.
More than 1,000 people showed up at the Hyde Park city offices Tuesday to cast their votes on a ballot that was devoid of a mayoral race but drew a lot of voters with Proposition 8 and a bond election for the Cache County School District.
However, by half past midnight, election officials had only counted about two-thirds of the ballots and were unable to speculate on the outcome of the vote.
In 2012, the city drafted and approved an ordinance that would have allowed a single class-A license to be issued to the Maverik convenience store, located at 25 E. 3700 North, allowing the convenience store to sell beer for off-site consumption.
However, the ordinance never took effect because hundreds of people signed their name to a petition asking the city to allow residents to make that decision.
