The Caribou County Commission has approved the sale of liquor by the drink on Sundays, but the ordinance only affects one business.

City businesses must seek approval from their city councils.The Cedar View Supper Club is the only business impacted by the new ordinance.

Caribou County Clerk Myrna Archibald said several bar owners had asked for the change, noting that nearby Lava Hot Springs had adopted a similar ordinance. They said that could draw customers to that resort community and possibly put intoxicated drivers on the highway.

The state allowed Sunday liquor sales two years ago, but it was up to the counties to accept them. Sunday sales of beer and wine in Caribou County have been approved for years.
