Tavern Fined For Violations

Macomb, IL – A Macomb bar is being given another chance to clean up its act. The Last Chance Saloon is being fined $1,000 for three violations, including have a non-Macomb resident manage the tavern and refusing to cooperate with police. Mayor Mick Wisslead says the saloon's next violations could lead to a suspension of its liquor license or perhaps even a revocation of the license.
Wisslead also says the license has expired for the proposed bar Detox, which was supposed to replace The Dog Pound. The sale of The Dog Pound has not been completed, meaning that bar can continue to operate until its license expires at the end of the month. Its owners could then apply for a license renewal or try again to sell the business.
