(Beaver Dam) The liquor license of the Exxon Mobile on North Spring Street in Beaver Dam has been suspended for ten days. Police Chief John. Kreuziger told city officials last month that he has received multiple complaints from the community about alcohol sales to underage patrons at the business and detailed five illegal sales in a five-week span. On May 15, officers reportedly witnessed juveniles exiting the Exxon with alcohol, conducted a stop and issued the teen’s citations. When officers returned to the Exxon to cite the clerk, they witnessed another apparent sale.
The city attorney and municipal judge reached an agreement with the owners and their attorney to suspend the license for ten days starting Wednesday (6/23). The alcohol coolers are currently taped off with caution tape. Officers are performing extra patrols in the area to ensure that the Exxon is not selling alcohol. Alcohol signage has been temporarily removed and Exxon’s liquor license is with the city clerk.
The police department had assessed enough points against the business to trigger a suspension or revocation hearing under the city’s Demerit Point Ordinance. The voluntary action replaced the need for council action.
