Steamboat Springs Of the 25 businesses checked Friday night, only one failed an alcohol compliance check.
Steamboat Springs Police Department officer Josh Carrell said the Kum & Go on Anglers Drive sold beer to a 19-year-old female who was working with police.
The liquor license holder must appear at a hearing in front of the city’s liquor hearing officer.
Carrell said two or three compliance checks are done each year with the help of Grand Futures Prevention Coalition, a nonprofit organization that works to reduce substance abuse throughout Routt, Moffat and Grand counties.
Carrell said he was pleased with the results of the most recent checks, which showed the businesses had a 96 percent compliance rate.
“They’re doing a phenomenal job when it comes to complying with and adhering to the liquor laws,” Carrell said.
