Branson Employees are Offered Alcohol Education Courses

Those who serve or sell alcohol had their first chance recently in Branson to take an alcohol education class. KSMU's Michele Skalicky has more.

The training is required for all businesses that sell alcohol in the city of Branson or businesses that are in the process of obtaining a liquor license.

Under a new liquor ordinance that took effect January 1st, liquor license holders are now required to provide alcohol education programs to all their employees who serve or sell alcohol, within 90 days of the time they are hired.

the purpose is to reduce the incidents of selling to minors or to those who are intoxicated.

Those who attended the two classes, presented by the Community Partnership of the Ozarks, learned things like how to spot and seize fake id's, tricks used by minors to gain access to alcohol and how to refuse a sale to a minor or intoxicated person.

They also learned the consequences of breaking the state and local liquor laws.

Another class is set for late March. To learn more or to register, contact the Community Partnership of the Ozarks.
