  • text of Local Liquor Control

    Local liquor control has served Montgomery County well. It contributes $30 million in annual profit to the County – helping us to fund schools, transportation, help for the vulnerable in our midst, and more. It helps to keep taxes lower. We have lower alcohol consumption and higher revenue for public purposes than other jurisdictions. There are not liquor stores on every corner. Our system makes it harder for underage individuals to purchase alcohol and provides more education for the public and for servers as well. It better protects the public health, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Click here to see the benefits of local control. Click here to see the public health benefits. Visit Department of Liquor Control for more information. (Press Release)
