ST. CHARLES – Hotel Baker has been fined $250, plus court costs, for a September liquor license violation, according to a St. Charles press release issued Friday.
Hotel Baker, 100 W. Main St., St. Charles, was cited Sept. 5 for letting a patron leave its premises while in possession of an alcohol beverage.
The violation was discussed at the St. Charles Liquor Control Commission meeting on Monday. Hotel representatives did not contest the allegation.
This Hotel Baker's first liquor violation since 2007.
"We acknowledge management's willingness to review and revise current procedures to ensure the ordinance is followed," Mayor Ray Rogina said in the release.
Rogina also serves as liquor commissioner.
This was the second liquor license violation Rogina has handled since becoming mayor. Earlier this month, he found the Filling Station guilty of allowing a patron to leave its premises with alcohol. The Filling Station will not be allowed to serve alcohol between midnight to 2 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, as punishment.
