Some Muskegon bars not in compliance with rules

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — A handful of Muskegon stores and bars are in danger of losing their liquor licenses if they don’t gain compliance with rules.

Each of the locations either failed inspections, didn’t properly fill out paperwork, or had unpaid taxes or fees, according to the Muskegon City Clerk’s office. The city commission has been asked to recommend their liquor licenses be revoked if they don’t come back into compliance.

Seven stores and bars were on the list as of Monday evening, including three separate Dollar General locations:

  • Clay Avenue Cellars on W. Clay Avenue
  • Dollar General on E. Apple Avenue
  • Dollar General on Henry Street
  • Dollar General on E. Laketon Avenue
  • Dreamer’s on Pine Street
  • Lakeshore Tavern on Lakeshore Drive
  • Tipsy Toad on W. Western Avenue

The city commission is expected to vote on its recommendations Tuesday evening.

The Michigan Liquor Commission would have to revoke the establishments’ licenses. The stores and bars would have until March 21 to come back into compliance to avoid losing their licenses.
