PLCB Returns More Than $2 Million in Licensing Fees to Communities
2020-03-11

            The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) today announced the return of more than $2 million in licensing fees to 1,117 municipalities in which licensees are located.

            Twice a year, as required by law, the PLCB returns liquor license fees paid by PLCB-approved licensees to the municipalities that are home to those licenses. Municipalities have flexibility in allocating and spending the returned license fees to meet local needs.

            The PLCB oversees the regulation of more than 15,000 retail liquor licenses statewide, including restaurants, clubs, and hotels. Licensees pay liquor license fees ranging from $125 to $700, depending on the type of license and the population of the municipality in which the license is located, as part of the annual license renewal or validation process, as well as in conjunction with approval of certain new applications.

            The current dispersal period represents fees paid from Aug. 1, 2019, to Jan. 31, 2020. In all, 45 cities, 423 boroughs, and 649 townships will receive payments ranging from $25 to $820,950.

            Municipalities in the Town and Country readership area receiving funds in Montgomery County  included: Lower Frederick Twp. $200; Marlborough Twp., $200; New Hanover Twp., $200; Pennsburg Borough, $200; and Upper Hanover Twp.$400.

            In Bucks County: Perkasie Borough, $800; Quakertown Borough, $1,600; Sellersville Borough, $850; Trumbauersville Borough, $$550; Milford Twp. $1,200; and Richland Twp. $1,050.

            In Berks County: Bally Borough $600; Bechtelsville Borough, $300; Boyertown Borough, $1,000; Hereford Twp. $400; and Washington Twp. $200.

            Over the last five fiscal years, the PLCB returned $22.4 million in licensing fees to local municipalities.
