From Woodstock Police Chief John Lieb:
ALCOHOL COMPLIANCE CHECKS
On Thursday, August 11th, 2022, the Woodstock Police Department conducted alcohol sales compliance checks on establishments that hold liquor licenses within the City of Woodstock.
Of the 23 establishments checked, three were found to be in violation and served alcohol to persons under the age of twenty-one years old. The establishments found not to be compliant were as follows:
• Main Street PourHouse, 214 Main Street
• La Placita Taqueria, 108 Cass Street
• Rosati’s of Woodstock, 1652 South Eastwood Drive
The store employees who served the alcohol products to the minors in the aforementioned establishments were issued a City of Woodstock Municipal Code Violation Citation.
The Illinois State Police Alcohol Countermeasure Enforcement (ACE) Team 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.
