"We inspected all of the Class C and tavern licenses, and there have been no violations at any establishments, and no calls for service at any establishments, either," Langmeyer said.
He told trustees the police department also ran a decoy operation with an underage individual, who was declined alcohol at all of the establishments.
He said it was the position of the police department that all of the establishments should have their liquor licenses renewed for another year.
"Good year," noted supervisor Leo Savoie.
