Guam - 106 establishments that have a license to serve alcohol have been put on notice. Of the 900 establishments including bars, retail stores and karaoke lounges, more than 100 failed to meet yesterday's deadline to renew their licenses.  Last night the Department of Revenue & Taxation's Compliance Branch issued warning notices to businesses that the licenses to serve alcohol have been suspended and must be renewed immediately. 

Rev & Tax Compliance Supervisor John Garrido says no businesses were shut down last night, but if the licenses aren't renewed and alcohol continues to be served, the premises will be shut down.  "If they remain open, then it's an automatic violation - it's automatically a violation then we'll write it up, report it to the director and normally the procedures is that he immediately suspend, but in this case close the premises for 48 hours," Garrido explained.

If establishments fail to renew their license by July 31, they will automatically be revoked.  The licenses cost between $300 and $1,000, depending on the types of alcohol being served.
