[March 03, 2017]  LINCOLN - SPRINGFIELD—In an effort to improve the allocation of alcohol beverage compliance resources, the State of Illinois and Logan County have recently joined forces to launch the Logan County Liquor Inspection Pilot Program.

Under the agreement, the Logan County Health Department has begun carrying out Standard Liquor Inspections for all Logan County license holders on behalf of the State of Illinois. Utilizing existing State resources, the Illinois Liquor Control Commission (ILCC) is providing financial assistance and training for designated local inspectors.

The Logan County Health Department began conducting inspections for the 66 license holders upon the completion of ILCC training in February and will continue through June 30, 2017 when the pilot program concludes. Inspections include areas of local concern, such as health/sanitation, license and insurance verifications, and deceptive practices. Under the terms of the agreement, local officials are required to report their findings to the state commission, which may result in further adjudicative action.
