Restaurant owner must submit plan

VERSAILLES – Due to several re-occurring violations, the Old Brick Tavern, Sunman, did not have its food permit renewed for 2014.

“We have some concerns,” administrator Tony Schneider announced to Ripley County Health Department members Jan. 28.

During inspections from Nov. 14, 2012-May 17, 2013, the restaurant had 14 critical and 14 noncritical findings. The more serious infractions ranged from a drain leaking into the basement and insects in the kitchen to date markings not being used and equipment not looking or feeling clean.

From July 10-Sept. 26, 2013, the establishment had 13 critical and three noncritical problems. At that time, the more serious items ranged from raw chicken being stored above ready-to-eat foods and insects in the kitchen to equipment needing to be cleaned.

On Nov. 1, 2013, an inspector found six critical violations, including inadequate temperatures and fryer baskets and the grill having a large buildup of debris, and one noncritical violation.

Health officer Dr. David Welsh noted, “Some of the issues were dealt with, but others were not.”

Restaurant owner Kenneth Moeller told members, “It was a little bit surprising to me (that the permit was not renewed). I thought I made some progress on those issues, and I’m still striving to do it. It’s my livelihood. I’m trying to maintain a higher standard to continue to serve the people of Ripley County.”

Welsh pointed out, “There were a number of inspections, and some of them were pretty bad .... I commend you on the improvements made at the beginning of last year, but things seemed to be sliding during the latter part of 2013 .... Once you’ve had the findings you’ve had in the past, you’re going to be looked at more closely because we have a responsibility to the public.”

Moeller said, “All along, as things came up, they were addressed .... I’m trying to rectify all the issues.”
