Proposed alcohol policy on BCC agenda
Placeholder Image

Barton Community College’s Board of Trustees will consider a proposed policy change that would allow beer or wine to be served on campus during special events. The proposal is on the agenda for a board meeting set for 4 p.m. Monday at the Seminar Room, F-30, on the lower level of the Fine Arts Building. The meeting was changed from the trustees’ regular Thursday date because of scheduling conflicts.
Wording on a two-page draft copy of the proposed policy limits the serving of alcoholic beverages to special BCC Foundation events at the Shafer Gallery, or other events and venues with board approval. Among the provisions of the policy is the statement: “Under no circumstance shall any individual under the age of 21, or without proper identification, be served or be allowed to possess or consume alcoholic beverages at any time on the Barton Community College campus.”
Other items on Monday’s agenda include personnel; changes to the Medical Coding and Medical Assistant programs; and a monitoring report on the college’s service regions.
