DUI Task Force Considers Culbertson Alcohol Server Training

The Roosevelt County DUI Task Force discussed a recent alcohol server training class in Wolf Point and a need to offer the class in Culbertson during the July meeting of the Task Force, held at the Roosevelt County Health Department in Wolf Point, Tuesday, July 1.
Twelve people — all employees of Wolf Point bars and restaurants — attended the alcohol server class in Wolf Point, Tuesday, June 2.
It was presented at no charge by the Glasgow-Wolf Point Work Force Center.
They offered to present the same training in Culbertson if the DUI Task Force would request that they do so.
County Commissioner Gary Macdonald said the same training program should be offered to alcohol servers in Culbertson. Then he issued what could have been a warning to bar owners on the east side of the county. Macdonald said if there isn’t a good turn-out for a class in Culbertson, a sheriff’s deputy could conduct compliance checks on Culbertson establishments that serve alcohol.
Task Force member Mary Vine suggested purchasing drink coasters for bars with the DUI Task Force name and a “drink responsible” message. Vine’s suggestion was received favorably and she was asked to obtain prices.
Task force member John Carlbom asked if there were statistics on a recent law enforcement sobriety check stop. Vine said she would ask for numbers of DUI arrests.
The DUI Task Force will next meet Wednesday, Aug. 6, at 2 p.m., in the conference room at the Health Department.
