The Courier 

Officials Seek Compliance, Not Citations


The Glasgow Police Department and Valley County Sheriff Office’s jointly conducted an alcohol compliance check throughout Valley County Feb. 12-13. The first round of checks has been completed. There were 32 checks in total. Four business’s employees outside of city limits were cited and five within city limits. Fines for these employees can be up to $500 and if underage sales continue, the state can investigate possibly confiscate licenses.

The four businesses cited outside city limits were the Gateway, Lakeridge, Vick’s Bar, and The Hangar. The establishments cited inside Glasgow were The Cottonwood, Sam’s Supper Club, VFW, Busted Knuckle Brewery, and Alley’s Palace.

Officials stressed that random follow-up checks will be conducted. Undercover underage buyers cannot lie or use fake identification.

Readers have expressed sentiments running the gamut from amused to outraged that the Courier would print a “warning” to local businesses. However, law enforcement officials asked that a public service announcement be released. The reason: The departments want compliance, not citations.

Regarding citations, Sheriff Glenn Meier said, “We would have loved nothing more than to have not a one.”
