Too Many Minnesota Families Touched by Domestic Violence

​​Fifty-two people died last year in Minnesota at the hands of a spouse, significant other, former relationship, parent, child, grandparent or other family member. Many more survived the violence, only to have it continue. During this Domestic Violence Awareness Month we recognize and honor Minnesota families impacted by domestic violence.

There is a way out.​​​​

Liquor industry returns to pre-COVID regulations

​Establishments with an alcoholic beverage license must comply with state law that requires serving in outdoor spaces that are compact and contiguous to their current business.

The licensed premises can include physically connected attachments to the main structure such as patios, decks or pavilions.  The space would have to be owned and/or leased, and be a part of the business.

The license application must include a complete description of the compact and contiguous area in which the liquor licensee will conduct business. It must also include a description of physically connected attachments to the main structure such as patios, decks, or pavilions.

If the description in this subpart covers a building with more than one story or rooms which are used for business purposes other than those permitted to be in combination with the license as outlined in Minnesota Rules part 7515.0420, then the description must specify the floor and the space to which the liquor license will apply.


Responsible Beverage Service Training

The Alcohol and Gambling Enforcement, In partnership with the Office of Traffic Safety, has relaunched the Law Enforcement Liaison-Responsible Beverage Service Train the Trainer Program. 

 

In this program, the agency trains and provides materials to local stakeholders from law enforcement, community health, and alcohol coalitions across the state to be recognized as Alcohol Awareness Regional Trainers. This designation allows the regional trainers to offer the state-approved responsible server training program to alcohol servers in their local counties and cities. 

 

By focusing on limiting underage access to alcohol and eliminating over-service the program and all involved are intent on reducing impaired driving related incidents and casualties.
