3 Huntley businesses fail liquor compliance check

Sanctions to be determined; 18 establishments passed

Three licensed liquor establishments in the village failed a liquor compliance check by the Huntley Police Department.

Best Price Tobacco and Gifts,
11717 E. Main St.; Pinecrest Golf Club, 11220 Algonquin Road; and Lucky Bernie’s, 9810 Route 47, were issued liquor license violations, according to a news release from Huntley police.

Police Chief Robert Porter said compliance checks happen once a year.

“We let all of our license holders know that we give them written notice that during the next 60 days we will be sending in an underage young adult who will come into their business and attempt to buy alcoholic beverages,” Porter said.

Porter said the Huntley Liquor Commission will determine sanctions on the three businesses under violation, and he said the police department takes the matter “very seriously.”

“Every municipality has a responsibility to make sure that we don’t have underage people purchasing alcohol in our community, and we take it very seriously as a police department,” Porter said. “The businesses are told that right when they apply for their licenses that you have some level of compliance checks just to make sure that they are abiding by their ordinances as a state law.”

Eighteen businesses passed the compliance check, which happened June 7, police said.
