A Letter to Our Citizens and Businesses, from Yuba County Sheriff Wendell Anderson
Wednesday May 6th, 2020
It was brought to the attention of local law enforcement that yesterday, representatives from the California Department of State Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) were in the Yuba-Sutter area contacting businesses. We are working with local businesses to obtain more information about each specific contact and what information ABC provided. We recognize ABC has licensing authority over a business' ability to serve alcoholic beverages. We are working with state and local officials to help mediate this issue moving forward. We encourage any business contacted by a state agency to ask for, and verify, proper identification and request a copy of any complaint that led to the business being contacted. Business owners should consider contacting their respective attorneys for legal guidance on any contacts from a state agency.
We support the decision to resume business and support the local order by our health officer. We would like to remind and urge local businesses to educate themselves on the specifics of the local order and to take steps to be in compliance.
