Local Alcohol Policy Work
A combination of Local, State and Federal laws help shape the role alcohol plays in our communities, including how we:
Manufacture and sell alcohol
Decide who can drink alcohol
Prevent and respond to alcohol-related problems
Wisconsin is a “local control” state, meaning that our local governments control alcohol policy development and enforcement.
Marquette County HCHY works to educate our local municipal leaders about policies and enforcement that are proven to help to reduce youth access to alcohol. HCHY advocates for policies that are widely considered as best practices.
