ALCOHOL COMPLIANCE CHECKS
On Thursday, June 13th, 2019, the Woodstock Police Department conducted alcohol sales compliance checks on establishments which hold liquor licenses with the City of Woodstock.
Of the 28 establishments checked, one was found to be in violation and served alcohol to persons under the age of twenty one years old.
The establishment that was found not to be compliant was as follows:
- Restaurante el Sol, 201 E. Church Street
The store employee who served the alcohol product to the minor in the aforementioned establishment was issued a City of Woodstock Municipal Code Violation Citation.
The Illinois State Police Alcohol Countermeasure Enforcement Team (ACE) assisted with this compliance check.
Compliance checks are performed by the Woodstock Police Department to determine if local liquor license holders are complying with state and local alcohol laws which prohibit the sale, purchase and acceptance of alcohol to persons under the age of 21.
The City of Woodstock educates local alcohol retailers on minimum-age alcohol laws and the importance of verifying the age of customers before selling age-restrictive products such as alcohol.
