NY Bodega Association, Liquor Authority hold meeting after raid

THE BRONX - The Bodega Association of New York is calling for an emergency meeting this evening with the NYS Liquor Authority after last week's citywide raid on underage alcohol sales. The meeting comes in the wake of a major sting that caught nearly 40 bodega owners across the borough selling alcohol to minors. Today, the association called on investigators to provide training and education to store owners who currently have or are applying for liquor licenses. The association also says that the state Liquor Authority has promised to offer the education courses within the next 30 to 60 days. A bodega must pay a fine of $2,500 the first time its owners are caught selling alcohol to minors. Repeat offenders can face fines of up to $10,000.
