LOCAL NEWS-
The cities of East Grand Forks and Crookston have social host ordinances and now Polk County Public Health is asking the Polk County Commissioners to pass an ordinance for the entire county.   The first reading for the ordinance was held at the county board meeting on Tuesday. Sue Thompson of Polk County Public Health said with the biggest cities having the ordinance they want to bring it to the entire county. The social host ordinance makes it a criminal act for anyone to provide the environment to allow underage drinking to occur. “They do not have to provide the alcohol, for example if I was a parent of high schoolers and they have friends over and I took their  keys and I let them drink in my home that would make me criminally responsible for a gross misdemeanor,” said Thompson.  “Alcohol is the number one choice in Polk County and the nation and when youths drink they binge drink and over consume and then they might engage in behaviors they would normally not do.  The adolescent brain is still developing so it is important that adults and children understand the importance to prevent the excess drinking of alcohol.”
