I wish the city would impose an additional penalty to these bussinesses that break the law. If you hit them with an additional 5000 dollar fine do you think they would still serve underage patrons? And look I would have just made the city 20 grand......

Good point Kevin. Clifts has been a bad keeper of the faith for a long time. Sure hope the kids do not get the idea this is a good easy place to get their alcohol. May be the police should step up their obsservation of these guilty establishments especialy with summer coming.

EP Lanes should be monitored 24 7 they overserve EVERYONE! If the police stationed themselves nearby when the leagues are ending for the night they would be making tons of $$$$$$$$$$$$. Also they employee people that don't know the laws about serving! The state needs to get invovled here!

All 4 "GUILTY" establishments paid a $250.00 fine. A slap on the wrist...Overserving is a BIGGER problem that serving a minor...
