Mayor Mironov stated, “The Township supports and is proud to promote the ‘We Check for 21’ Program, along with our licensed business partners, which is designed to heighten the awareness and prevention of underage drinking within all of our communities.  There are many serious impacts to underage drinking, including many young drivers under 21 who are involved in automobile accidents have blood alcohol levels above the legal limit.  The ‘We Check for 21’ Program is an excellent vehicle to bring together municipal government leaders, young people, parents, key community and school leaders, policy makers and local businesses toward a common positive community effort.  We appreciate and call on all businesses and citizens to become more aware of and more involved in efforts to reduce underage drinking and enhance safety in our community.”
