Commissioners ask Country Jam organizers to help curb underage drinking

The Mesa County Commissioners today sent a letter to Townsquare Media asking for their help curbing underage drinking at Country Jam.

The letter comes after the Commissioners agreed earlier this month to approve Townsquare's request to waive reimbursement to the Mesa County Sheriff's Office and the Mesa County Health Department for their services at Country Jam.

Last year, 213 citations were given to minors in possession of alcohol, and 33 other liquor enforcement-related citations were given out within the festival grounds.

"This is concerning," the Commissioners wrote. "We recommend you enhance all efforts to address the issue, in addition to working with the Mesa County Sheriff's Office and other appropriate law enforcement agencies, to strengthen the anti-underage drinking campaign."

The Commissioners, in their letter, made several suggestions. To read the full letter, go here.
