The city of Branson Finance Department will be holding two liquor training sessions in the coming weeks for servers, cashiers and bartenders. This training is required of all businesses selling liquor in the city of Branson or businesses that are in the process of obtaining a liquor license.

There will be two sessions on Friday, February 20 at 9:30 a.m. and again at 3 p.m. in the Council Chambers of Branson City Hall. Another day of training will be available on March 26 at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., also in the Branson City Hall Council Chambers.

The Community Partnership of the Ozarks will be conducting the liquor training, which is expected to last about 1 ½ hours. The cost is $5 per person, payable at the time of the training. It’s recommended that persons wanting to attend the session call the Community Partnership of the Ozarks at 417-888-2020 to reserve seating.

Under the new ordinance approved by the Board of Aldermen in October, liquor license holders are now required to provide alcohol education programs to all their employees who serve or sell alcohol within 90 days of the employees’ hire date. The intent is to have more responsible sellers of alcohol to minimize the risks of selling to underage and intoxicated buyers.

For additional information on the training or the new liquor ordinance, contact Carl Garrett, supervisor of licensing and tax compliance at 417-334-3345 extension 318.
