Times are tough all over.

One sign of this: Liquor Control Enforcement officers recently cited D&S Jordan, Inc. — owners of the Streamside Inn — with a violation of the PA Liquor Code for bad checks.

On April 15, 21 and 22 of this year, the company used its checkbook to pay for beer purchases, but had insufficient funds in their accounts to cover the purchases.

Unfortunately for Streamside, the Liquor Control office is likely to hit the company with more than just a $35 insufficient funds charge from like the bank.

The case will now be brought before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) with the authority to impose penalties from $50 to $1,000 for “minor offenses,” according to a press release from District 2 Liquor Control Commander Gary Severns. More serious offenses can carry fines of up to $5,000.

In some cases, the ALJ can also suspend or revoke a liquor license, depending on the severity of the charges, as well as order the licensee to undergo training on the requirements of being a licensee.

Severns said for a first offense, the penalty would usually run around $150, increasing from there for subsequent occurrences.
