GENEVA – Two Geneva restaurants sold alcohol to minors during a compliance check conducted last month by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission, the agency said Monday in a news release.
The Illinois Liquor Control Commission and Secretary of State Police checked 16 Geneva businesses on April 24. Of those licensees, Chelios' Pub & Grill, 1996 S. Kirk Road, and Altiro Latin Fusion, 308 Anderson Blvd., sold alcohol to ILCC underage participants, according to the release.
Statewide, authorities visited 242 businesses in April and cited 42 licensees for violations of liquor control laws, resulting in an 83 percent compliance rate, the commission reported.
Licensees also were checked in such communities as Cook County, DuPage County and McHenry County, according to the release.
Monday's report was the result of ongoing undercover and cooperative law enforcement operations conducted by Illinois Liquor Control Commission agents, local law enforcement officials and volunteers from high schools and colleges.
The teams randomly visit liquor stores, restaurants and bars to check for ongoing compliance that no liquor is sold to those younger than age 21.
