3 of 14 businesses sell alcohol to minors in City of Batavia

On June 27, 2008, Batavia Police did compliance checks on 17 bars and businesses in the City of Batavia. 3 sold to minors and 14 did not. That's 21% of retail establishments, based on this sample, sold alcohol to minors. This is cause for concern because the problem of underage sales does not seem to be getting better but has stayed pretty level over the last 3 or 4 years. Perhaps bigger penalties need to be assessed to give stores more of an incentive to be in compliance with the law.
