The Dresden Beer Board met this morning to discuss two businesses cited last week for selling alcohol to a minor.
It was the first offense for the Dollar General on Highway 22, and the board agreed on a $500 dollar civil penalty and six months of probation. The store clerk who sold the beer to the minor appears in General Sessions Court next week.
On-The-Way Stop and Shop was cited last week for their second offense, and was given a stiffer penalty of a $1,000 dollar civil penalty, along with suspending their beer license for 30 days. The board also added three months to the store’s previous six month probation. The store clerk from the Stop and Shop will also appear Monday in General Sessions Court.
