Liquor and tobacco compliance

Shelves of liquor bottles in a store.

Underage purchase of alcohol and tobacco is a growing concern for community members. In an effort to enforce liquor and tobacco sales laws, the police department conducts compliance checks of all licensed establishments within the City.

Cashiers/servers who violate the law by selling to minors are referred to District Court. License holders are referred to the City of Minnetonka licensing authority for administrative sanctions that range from fines to suspensions.
