Businesses charged with liquor law violations

August 8, 2018

A Boswell business was cited by the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement in July.

Merchants Restaurant and Lounge was cited for allegedly failing to notify the state of a manager change within 15 days. The business also was cited for selling alcohol to a 19-year-old during a supervised age compliance check on June 29, according to the bureau’s Altoona enforcement office.

The office also cited Southside Brew-Thru in Johnstown for selling cigarettes without a permit and Rocky’s Tavern in Johnstown for failing to post a suspension notice in a conspicuous place on the premises on June 18, according to an office report.

The charges will be brought before an administrative law judge, who can impose penalties ranging from $50 to $5,000, depending on the seriousness of the offense. The judge may also suspend or revoke an establishment’s license or mandate training.
