On August 20th, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office and the Cumming Police Department conducted a joint operation to enforce state laws and ordinances regarding the sales and consumption of alcoholic beverages.
During the operation, thirteen businesses were cited for violations of selling alcohol to minors, eight of which were also cited with city ordinance violations. There were also three of the thirteen businesses who had to close for the night due to no employee on scene having an alcohol sales permit.
A total of forty-four businesses were checked during the operation, all of which were inside the City of Cumming. The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office Ordinance and Permits Unit conducts these operations frequently as part of an effort to reduce alcohol consumption in teens.
