Punishments levied for five businesses that sold liquor to minors

STERLING – Two businesses will be fined and three others reprimanded for selling liquor to minors, the city’s three-member Liquor Commission Board ruled at a hearing Monday morning.

Warner’s MVP Lounge,
3 E. Third St.; and The Factory Pub-n-Grub, 103 W. Third St., which were not represented at the meeting, will be fined $250, City Clerk Marie Rombouts said.

Representatives from North End Liquor, 208 W. Miller Road; Joe’s Liquor, 203 E. Second St.; and Kelly’s, 281 Locust St., were strongly reminded to card everyone to whom they sell liquor, and will receive a letter of reprimand, Rombouts said

The businesses sold liquor to underage agents during an Illinois Liquor Control Commission compliance check on Feb. 24.

The Liquor Commission Board is made up of Mayor Skip Lee, Alderwoman Retha Elston and Alderman Joe Martin.
