ST. CHARLES –Tap House Grill in St. Charles once again has been cited for a liquor tax violation.
The restaurant, located at 3341 W. Main St., is required to pay a $750 fine and $100 in court costs. St. Charles Mayor Ray Rogina took the action following a hearing before the St. Charles Liquor Control Commission on Jan. 20. Rogina also serves as the city's liquor commissioner.
According to a memo from St. Charles Finance Director Chris Minick, Tap House Grill has had a repeated history of significantly late payments.
"Complaints of violation have been served on Tap House Grill for chronic late payment of the alcohol tax liability," he said. "The repeated late payments result in considerable staff time and effort to collect the liabilities and the establishments are well aware of their obligations to file the returns and remit payment."
In December, Tap House Grill had its hours reduced for a week as a result of a liquor tax violation.
