Douglas County Health Department to Close Delinquent Restaurants

The Douglas County Health Department has begun closing about two dozen food and drink establishments for operating without a permit. Invoices were sent to those businesses on November 1st and all 2018 permits expired on December 31st.. A delinquency notice was sent on January 4th.

Operating without a permit is a misdemeanor, and violators are subject to a fine and jail time, or both, for each offense. Each day of operating without a permit is considered a separate offense. In addition, some businesses owe late fees from last year.

Health Director Dr. Adi Pour said the department does not want to close the businesses, "but they are aware of the law and have brought the problem on themselves. Operators know they must have a permit. They also know all permits expired December 31st."

The delinquent establishments will be closed starting Tuesday and citations will be issued by the Omaha Police Department.

Pour says all businesses that provide food or drink to the public present a potential public health risk. Therefore they are subject to regulation. The cost of the permits is used to cover the cost of inspections. I
