Appleton to review penalties for serving minors Submitted: 03/16/2014
Appleton to review penalties for serving minors
Story By Associated Press

APPLETON - An Appleton restaurant that served a beer to an undercover police operative ended up going out of business. Now some city officials are suggesting that the city's alcohol-revocation policy be re-evaluated.

A Post-Crescent Media report (http://post.cr/OuipTM ) says TJ's Japanese Steakhouse used to be a $2.2 million business. When it was cited in 2012 for serving a 20-year-old, the restaurant was over the limit for the city's demerit system.

Eventually the owners surrendered their liquor license and sold the business.

Alderman Jeff Jirschele says he wonders if there's a way to deal with the issue that doesn't amount to a business's death sentence. He says that hurts entrepreneurs and leads to the blight of vacated buildings.

But Alderwoman Kathy Plank says the current system works as it's supposed to.
