(March 15, 2019) The Worcester County Board of License Commissioners issued a suspension for selling alcohol to minors and granted several licenses during a meeting last Wednesday.
• Marlin Market was given a fine and a suspension for selling alcohol to minors.
The market, located on the 9600 block of Stephen Decatur Highway in West Ocean City, was found to have violated the Alcoholic Beverages Article.
The market received a seven-day suspension of off sale products from March 7-14.
The store had to pay $2,500 for two fines by last Friday.
Board member Marty W. Pusey made a motion to approve the decision, which was seconded by board member R. Charles Nichols.
• An application for a Class “D” beer, wine and liquor seven-day license for the WXYZ Bar and Tiki Bar in the Aloft Hotel on the 4500 block of Coastal Highway in Ocean City was approved.
The license covered the entire hotel, as guests were permitted to take drinks from the bar back to their rooms.
Three pieces of acoustic music indoors and outdoors will be allowed seven days a week. Inside will go until midnight and outside would go until 9 p.m. A pool table was also approved.
Pusey made a motion to approve the license and Nichols seconded it.
