NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The New York City Council on Wednesday approved a package of bills that will reduce the fines restaurant owners pay for minor health infractions.
As 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported, Gusto Ristorante e Bar Americano, at 60 Greenwich Ave., is a family-run restaurant. The manager said the fines for violations have really hurt the restaurant’s budget in the past, and reducing the fines is what he wanted to hear.
“We’ve received fines for up to $2,000, up to $3,000,” he said. “This will be a great change for us.”
