SHENANDOAH - The Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement recently fined several area businesses for liquor law violations, the bureau's Allentown district office said in a media release.
According to the release, three businesses in northern Schuylkill were cited in the month of January for violations they said occurred in the fall.
Michael R. Gualtier, 637 West Centre Street, was cited on Jan. 17 after troopers said that, between Oct. 15 and Nov. 19, the west end beer distributor failed to comply with an order mandating "responsible alcohol management certification" stemming from a prior citation issued last Spring.
According to the PA Liquor Control Board, the establishment was fined $1400 on March 6, 2019 for selling alcoholic beverages to a 19-year-old on Dec. 15, 2018. State law requires that a business found to have sold alcohol to minors or a visibly intoxicated person undergo training to "ensure responsible alcohol management."
In Mahanoy City, Carini's at 33 East Centre Street was cited on Jan. 17 for selling alcohol to a 19-year-old on Nov. 20, 2019.
Two blocks away, McGuire's Pub at 130 West Centre Street was cited on Jan. 29 because music or other entertainment played via a loudspeaker could be heard beyond the establishment's property line on Sept. 14 and Nov. 9, 2019.
All charges will be brought before an administrative law judge who can impose penalties ranging from $50 to $1,000 for minor offenses, up to $5,000 for more serious offenses, as well as a potential license suspension or revocation, based on the severity of the charge.
