Citizens of Chico gathered in City Hall on the night of the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election, and two key points stood out — the acceptance of California Alcohol and Beverage grant and the institution of latest charges for business hashish.
The council authorised the usage of a California Alcohol and Beverage Control grant for $19,000 to fund roughly 20 operations focusing on underage alcohol gross sales.
“This is specifically a grant for the Chico Police Department to work the underage drinking operation. It’s really a shoulder-tap program to make sure that our licensed businesses in town are adhering to the rules and not selling to underage,” mentioned Chico Police Department Chief Matt Madden.
The plan would purpose to quote companies the place the sale of alcohol to underage consumers takes place. Consequences for staff who illegally promote to minors can embody a high-quality, obligatory neighborhood service and suspension. Businesses can even lose their liquor licenses.
