Welcome to the Wake County ABC Board.
NOTE IN REFERENCE TO THE RECENT REPORT FROM THE NORTH CAROLINA AUDITOR INVOLVING THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA ABC COMMISSION
Many people have asked us at Wake County ABC what our opinion is on the recent report from the NC State Auditor about the NC ABC Commission. The Audit involves a contract between the State (not Wake County) and a private company. The State contract in question provides logistics for delivery of inventory across the entire state. Wake County ABC and other local ABC Boards have NO involvement with that contract. We here with Wake County ABC continually strives to generate revenue for public health objectives. Every year we appropriate profits back to Wake County, all Wake County municipalities, and various non-profit agencies that support drug/alcohol educations and treatment programs as well as the State General Fund. The Wake County ABC system is totally receipt supported and no General Funds (i.e. tax dollars) are use to support the ABC system. Liquor sales total over $1 billion statewide and $130 million of that is from Wake County. Bottom line…Wake County ABC is operated efficiently and effectively for the citizens of Wake County. We appreciate your business and will continue to be good stewards of the revenues we are entrusted with.
