GENEVA — A July 26 hearing is set before the Geneva Liquor Commission for three local businesses that allegedly sold alcohol to underage people during Swedish Days.
At the hearing, the businesses will be allowed to present their own witnesses and challenge testimony, the city said Thursday.
On June 22, Geneva police checked 13 downtown businesses and beer gardens that were open for the city’s traditional Swedish Days festival. During the compliance checks, three businesses sold or delivered alcohol to minors who were working with police, police said.
The Little Owl & Flagstone Pub and Grill, 101 W. State St.; Cabooses, 300 Crescent Place; and Savway Fine Wines & Spirits, 5151 W. State St., were all cited for violating the state’s Liquor Control Act.
