What happens when Boise police send hidden sting and when officials at a city-owned center are selling alcohol to an underage buyer?

They wrote a mention, of course.

That happened two months ago at Idaho Ice World, operated by Department of Parks and Handheld Recreation at 7072 S. Eisenman Road in Southeast Boise. An employee selling beer was arrested on 28 February with a minor who was part of the sting.

“The date of birth on the misreading card was a human error,” said Doug Holloway, director of Boise parks, in a telephone interview. “We owned it and made sure we put some things in place to make sure it didn't happen again.” T

The Parks Department had the option of paying a fine of $ 500 or suspending a license to sell beer and wine for 10 days. City officials chose the suspension, Holloway said.

This was the first time the rink was mentioned for alcohol violations, said Tim Marsano, spokesman for Idaho State Police. The ISP Alcohol Control Bureau supervises alcohol retailers in the state.

The city of Idaho Ice World worked from the end of 2003, when she bought the rink for $ 1 million from Simplot Trust J.R. The rink, which is located near Interstate 84's shopping center near Boise Outlets, offers public skating offers, classes and hockey series for young people and adults.

The city began operating a concession stand of the rink two years ago after Chicago Connection had its contract to finish. Beer and wine were added to the snack menu after adult players and parents of young hockey players were able to buy a glass of beer or wine.

Holloway said that alcohol sales are much smaller than at the two city-owned golf courses, Warm Springs and Quail Hollow.

After the police stand, Parks Department staff spoke to employees to better train them on age verification procedures. This included selling the anonymous worker to the underage buyer, who was not released to him, Holloway said.

The department also received an electronic scanner which reads bar code on the back of the drivers license and says whether buyers are old enough to buy alcohol.

“With the scanners, we don't have to do the math when someone comes in and when he buys an alcoholic drink,” Holloway said.

The Parks Department already uses scanners at Warm Springs and Quail Hollow golf courses.

“We promoted our medicine and will be returning to business,” he said.

Idaho Ice World was an adventure site announced nationally in 2006 where two Zamboni operators drove a pair of ice motor groomers from the rink – at top speed 5 mph – to Burger King. They left midnight meal at the driving window and returned to the rink, a round trip about a mile and a half.

Both drivers were lit.

The alcohol suspension ended on Saturday, April 13, Marsano said by phone, but Holloway said he is not yet back selling alcohol.

“We're cleared to go,” Holloway said. “Within the next few days we will be ready to start selling again.”

The Guardian Handheld first reported the alcohol incident.
