Beyond the processing of violations, OLCC has a long history of failing to actually process change applications despite accepting the changes. For example, I have seen licensees file a change of ownership removing a member of a company. A year later, OLCC is still contacting that former member claiming they are still an owner on the license even though the application was clearly in OLCC’s system. They simply failed to update their records. What does it say about our regulators that they cannot simply update information and process inspection reports in a timely fashion? How are we in the industry supposed to trust regulators who can discover violations and sit on them for more than a year? I think we, as an industry, should ask OLCC to do better.
