KENT COUNTY, MARYLAND


Board of License Commissioners

February 17, 2004

The Honorable Board of License Commissioners met today with the following present: Roy W. Crow, Scott D. Livie, and William W. Pickrum, presiding.

Mauritz Stetson, Alcohol Beverage Inspector, was in attendance.


SPECIAL LICENSE

The Commissioners approved the following Special Licenses:

Two (2) Class C Beer, Wine, and Liquor Licenses for Radcliffe Creek School, Chestertown, for their fund-raising activities, to take place on March 5 and March 19, 2004.


TOBACCO RETAILERS HOUSE BILL 500

Mr. Stetson reported that he sent correspondence to Delegate Dereck E. Davis, of the 25th Legislative District (Prince George's County), expressing his support of House Bill 500. This House Bill would allow the State Comptroller to suspend or revoke tobacco retailer licenses for violations of State or local laws prohibiting the sale of tobacco to minors. Mr. Stetson expressed his opinion that, with the passage of this Bill, Kent County and other counties with strong enforcement programs, will be able to request license sanctions against the repeat or chronic violator.

Mr. Stetson also reported that the tobacco training films (resources for the prevention of minors' use of tobacco) are finished and that he is using them in his alcohol awareness classes. He expressed his hope that the County schools and police departments would take advantage of them as educational resources. He noted the statistic that the risk of future addiction to tobacco products for children under the age of 14 years is reduced significantly if children of those ages have not used tobacco products.

Commissioner Pickrum inquired as to whether or not awareness programs are conducted in the high school and middle school, to which Mr. Stetson replied that the health department handles the awareness education in the schools. He also noted that there is a significant reduction in the use of tobacco by the general public in the State.


VIOLATION
SUDS-IN-SODA


Mauritz Stetson, Alcohol Beverage Inspector, notified the Commissioners of an alleged violation of the Alcoholic Beverage Laws Article 2B, Section 12-108, of the Annotated Code of Maryland - sale to a person under the age of twenty-one, that took place at Suds-in-Soda, Chestertown, on January 24, 2004. He indicated that a detailed report will be forth-coming to the Board once the hearing has taken place. An administrative hearing will be scheduled.


There being no further business to claim their attention, the Board adjourned to meet again on Tuesday, February 24, 2004, at 8:30 a.m., at the Kent County High School.
