The new plan involves, among other things, meeting with local bar owners (especially those located near parade routes) to gain suggestions as to how to minimize the amount of underage drinkers present in their establishments.

The office is expected to double the amount of agents from last year stationed along parade routes monitoring potential underage drinkers.
