Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Additional Info

Montgomery County’s Department of Liquor Control (DLC) recently released its first report entitled, “Alcohol Compliance Check Program for FY 2008-09,” that outlines the results of a new protocol adopted in 2008 to reduce the availability of alcohol to anyone under 21 years of age. The report found that efforts to reduce the number of establishments that are illegally selling alcohol to minors have already proven successful in Bethesda and Wheaton – two areas that have reported a high number of citations in the past. Of the 60 establishments checked in the past month, only one sale was made. All servers/sellers asked for an ID and/or questioned the youth.
