Six Johnson County establishments, including three in Iowa City, failed recent compliance checks by selling alcohol to minors.

Iowa City police cited employees at Hy-Vee, 1201 N. Dodge St., Kum & Go, 25 W. Burlington St., and Panchero’s, 32 S. Clinton St.

Officials will forward the violations to the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division for liquor license-related civil penalties, according to a release.

Johnson County Sheriff’s Office officials issued violations at Johncy’s Liquor Store and Brown Bottle in North Liberty and Chappy’s Dry Dock in Shueyville.

Fines, surcharges, and court costs associated with these violations total roughly $740, officials said.
Twenty-one Iowa City businesses passed the compliance checks on Feb. 25, and 22 Johnson County establishments passed the next day.

Officials determined compliance in Iowa City by sending underage youths and plainclothes officers to the establishments to attempt to purchase alcohol.
