Wednesday September 11th, 2019
Pennsylvania municipalities that are home to establishments with liquor licenses will receive more than $2.4 million in returned fees from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB). Host municipalities receive these fees twice a year and may allocate and spend the funds to meet local needs.
 
The current amount reflects fees paid from February 1 to July 31, 2019. Fifty-six cities, 551 boroughs, and 772 townships will receive payments ranging from $25 to more than $395,000.
 
The PLCB oversees the regulation of more than 15,000 retail liquor licenses statewide for restaurants, clubs, and hotels. Licensees pay fees ranging from $125 to $700 depending on the kind of license and population of the municipality where it is located. 
 
Over the last five years, the PLCB has returned $22.4 million in licensing fees to municipalities.
