FARGO — A pair of business in Cass County recently failed alcohol compliance checks when conducted on Feb. 16.

Old 10 Saloon, at 407 Main St. in Buffalo, and Veteran's Club at 814 Front St. in Casselton, both failed their respective compliance checks. It's the second fail in a one year for both businesses.

An alcohol compliance failure in Cass County is considered an infraction, the penalty is imposed by the court, and the entity who signs their liquor license is notified.

Violation for a second fail in one year is likely to be a $250 administrative fee imposed on the liquor license holder.

Nine other establishments passed their round of compliance checks.


Several times per year, Fargo Cass Public Health partners with local law enforcement agencies to carry out alcohol compliance checks in Fargo, West Fargo and Cass County. The intent of the checks is to ensure alcohol retailers are not selling any alcohol to minors.

Licensed alcohol retailers are encouraged to periodically review city ordinances and state laws related to sale of alcohol and to include such information in training for new employees.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
