The Liquor Department operates three retail liquor stores located within the City of Columbia Heights. Under MN statute, the primary purpose of municipal liquor stores is to control the distribution of alcohol for public safety purposes. Municipal liquor stores can also generate income for the community, reducing the amount of property taxes otherwise required for City functions. The City’s three-store operation has provided funds for City infrastructure and equipment and for community policing activities such as D.A.R.E. that reduce the potential negative impacts of alcohol.
