Steamboat briefs for Oct. 10

Eight businesses passed a recent alcohol compliance check conducted by the Steamboat Springs Police Department.

Police Officer Josh Carrell said the Kum & Go on Anglers Drive, Ptarmigan Inn, Steamboat Smokehouse, Beau Jo’s Mountain Bistro, Canton Chinese Restaurant, Qdoba Mexican Grill, Village Inn and La Montana passed the routine compliance check Sept. 28.

The September compliance check was the second time the Police Department garnered a 100 percent compliance rate in 2007. In March, every tested business passed a compliance check. Police used two 16-year-old and 17-year-old boys for the checks in September, Carrell said.

The Kum & Go and Qdoba Mexican Grill were “rechecks” as the result of the businesses failing a June compliance check.

A federal Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws grant funded the checks.
