Alcohol sales compliance checks held

With coordination and supervision of the Swanton Police Department, alcohol sales compliance checks were randomly conducted on March 29 at three Swanton businesses permitted to sell alcoholic beverages. All three businesses appropriately verified the ages of the potentially underage buyers.

Officials at the Swanton Area Community Coalition and the police department commended Kroger, Lassus Handy Dandy BP and Sunoco for their proper server practices for checking individuals’ identification to prevent underage consumption.

Currently checks are being conducted to ensure that businesses selling alcohol are utilizing best practice and continuing their education for the prevention of alcohol sales to underage individuals.
