ST. CHARLES – A downtown establishment's liquor license will be temporarily suspended next month as punishment for an August violation, according to a St. Charles news release.
Acting as liquor commissioner, Mayor Ray Rogina last week found the Filling Station, 300 W. Main St., St. Charles, guilty of allowing a patron to leave its premises with an alcoholic beverage on Aug. 16.
As punishment, the Filling Station will not be allowed to serve alcohol from midnight to 2 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, the city announced Monday.
"The penalty supports the city's desire to promote a safe environment for all in downtown St. Charles," Rogina said in a written statement.
The suspension is in lieu of a monetary fine.
The Filling Station's last liquor violation was in 2011, according to the city.
