Alcohol Committee

Get involved! Our next meeting will be Thursday, May 11, 2017 – 3:00pm, at the Evanston Public Library.

The alcohol committee develops initiatives to help youth lead healthy lifestyles and prevent underage drinking in the community.  Recent efforts by the alcohol committee include:

  • Partnership with local Evanston businesses and the Illinois Liquor Control Commission’s YOUR ACTIONS MATTER! Alcohol Awareness campaign.
  • Introducing B.A.S.S.E.T. (Beverage Alcohol Seller and Server Education Training) to the City of Evanston retailers and  instituting a mandatory training in B.A.S.S.E.T. for all alcohol retailers. In 2014, 92% of businesses passed alcohol compliance checks.
  • Training Evanston Township High School athletic coaches on signs of teen alcohol use and how to report use.
