DABC to Helper: 'Let's talk more'

Flanking Helper's State Liquor Agency sign are two other symbols: a Welcome to Helper banner on a lamp post and a Closed card in the papered-over shop window.

After deciding earlier this month that the last thing the city needs is another unlit, vacant building on Main Street, the city council sent a delegation to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission Tuesday to make the case for allowing the package store to reopen.

Councilman Robert Bradley presented the city's position. With Bradley were councilman Jason Llewelyn and mayor Dean Armstrong.

The presentation was enough to get commissioners to vote 3-2 to have the city return with more statistical data for another meeting in May.

The store has been shut down since January, when the previous operator retired. The county's west side now has only one liquor store in Price.

Helper has been striving for years to enhance its tourism potential. The council views the store closure as a setback for that.

Armstrong said after the meeting that the commission's vote is not a guarantee of approval, but a reason for cautious hope.
