The smell and the flies are just disgusting' ' -- Bob Doueihi A BURWOOD seafood shop owner has been given a final warning to clean up his act following com- plaints of putrid smells and incor- rect waste disposal. Earlier this year, Burwood Sea- food, on Burwood Rd, racked up $900 in fines for hygiene issues. Deluxe Dry Cleaning owner Bob Doueihi, whose shop is at the rear of Burwood Seafood, has been complaining about the fish shop for more than a year. ''When he (owner Sam Chung) loads his fish, the stinky water comes from his truck and goes onto the gutter and the concrete,'' Mr Doueihi said. ''He puts his rubbish into the rubbish bin without a plastic bag and when they throw it in the rubbish collector the water pours onto the street and the smell and the flies are just disgusting,'' he said. Mr Doueihi said he spent hours watering down the contaminated water with detergent. He said the smell was affecting his business, as customers con- stantly complained. But Mr Chung said he ran a healthy business and asked why people hadn't complained in the 10 years he had been operating. ''I just want to know why? Why there was no complains about the water leaking at the front and the back of the shop in the past 10 years?'' Mr Chung said. ''Why there was no complaints about the rubbish handling in past 10 years, and also no complains about the hygiene condition?'' Burwood Council has conducted regular routine inspections of the premises over the past three years. The latest inspection on March 16 revealed a number of breaches of food regulations, including re- lating to food storage, food trans- portation, the cleanliness of prem- ises, maintenance of the building and transport vehicle, and pest control. ''The owner indicated he was going to carry out a major refurbishment to bring the prem- ises to an acceptable standard,'' a council spokesman said. According to the council, the owner had failed to act responsibly but the council decided to present the business operator with one last chance to clean up his act. Cr John Sidoti, who has been approached by some neighbour- ing businesses about the seafood shop, doesn't want the business to close down. But he warned if the operators failed to act responsibly, action would be taken. t iB Sat. 4 April, 11am Giant chess set*, Burwood Park More info: phone 9911 9911 or visit www.burwood.nsw.gov.au All events are correct at time of printing but may be subject to change without notice. for a FREE chocolate egg between 11am & 2pm on in the Town Centre on: urs.2,Fri.3, s. 7, Thurs. 9, at. 11 April Catch the Easter Bunny...
