The "get-tough" polirv will affect approximately 112 taverns in unincorporated county areas. Second violations will be met with closures and fines, Hagnauer said. Third-time violators will be subject to action by the state's attorney. "I remind the tavern owners to look into the little yellow book (county liquor ordinances) and I empnasize the thing about minors," Hagnauer said. In other action related to county tavern operations, the county board license committee began reviewing the existing liquor license fee system at a Thursday morning meeting. Presently, the county charges $300 annually for tavern licenses. Several J & A Springman CHAIN LINK FENCING county board members at the August board meeting criticized the $300 fee as being too low. The $300 fee was adopted in 1934. Several Madison County communities levy a more expensive liquor- license fee. Alton charges $625 annually, Wood River levies a $500 fee for I a.m. licenses and $900 for 2 a.m. licenses. Ed- wardsvllle and Collinsville charge $400. Granite City charges $700. Other Telegraph area counties generally charge $500 for tavern licenses. Edward Voumard, license committee chairman aid District No. 9 representative of Alton, said the present fee system would be revised. Voumard expects to submit a new fee system to the county board in October. Godfrey, III.
