Officials learn they can’t impose beer surcharge that upset civic groups

    A controversial proposal by Port Washington officials to impose a surcharge on beer served at festivals was dropped last week by the Finance and License Committee.

    “It can’t happen,” City Administrator Mark Grams said.

    City Attorney Eric Eberhardt issued an opinion last week that the fee could not be legally imposed, killing the proposal at the committee level, Grams said.

    Eberhardt told officials that only the state and federal governments can impose a tax on alcohol, Grams said.
