The county could shut down more than a hundred Omaha restaurants for not settling their tab. An extensive list by the Douglas County Health Department indicates bars and restaurants are delinquent on paying for their Food & Drink Permit. From downtown to far west Omaha, northeast to southwest and everywhere in between, the department says it's an unprecedented problem and they've got a solution.
"If those businesses are not paying their permits by the end of this week, we'll go to the businesses and we'll put a sticker on the door that they are closed,” says Dr. Adi Pour, the Douglas County Health Director. "These are not new businesses. These are businesses who have been here who have paid in previous years. I'm not understanding why there is such a delay of people paying this."
The permit fees are due January 1st and Douglas County Health Dept. says all businesses have been notified more than once. Without a permit they would be operating illegally, which they could be charged with a misdemeanor.
