HARRISBURG — Sixty five municipalities in Luzerne County have received their share of funds collected by the state from Feb. 1-July 31 through state liquor license fees.


Overall, the county received $118,240, ranging from $23,400 for Wilkes-Barre to $50 for Slocum Township.


License fees are based on the type of license and the population of the municipality in which it is located, Stacy Kriedeman, the state liquor control board spokeswoman, said Tuesday.


The fees are distributed twice a year to municipalities. In the previous round, which included Aug. 1 through Jan. 31, $55,600 was distributed to Luzerne County municipalities. Statewide, from Feb. 1-July 31, $2.4 million was distributed to a total of 1,418 municipalities.


Under the Pennsylvania Liquor Code, fees are collected whenever a liquor license application, renewal or validation is submitted. Once approved, the money is distributed to the municipality in which the licensee is located to help defray the cost of local law enforcement.


Here’s a breakdown of how which local municipalities received funds, and how much they got:
