Worcester seal

(Sept. 6, 2019) Eight area food service businesses were hit with alcohol violations at the Board of License Commissioners meeting on Aug. 21. The businesses all faced a hearing. 

The consequences ranged from a letter of reprimand to a $2,000 fine.

According to Liquor License Administrator April Payne, police conducted an alcohol violation check at 262 properties in Worcester County. 

“The ratio is really good between the ones who did not sell and the ones who did,” Payne said. 

Payne says the police send in one of their cadettes to conduct these checks. Restaurants in violation must then face a hearing before the Board of License Commissioners. The board implements the fines based on the information presented at the hearing.
