Mayor’s office shuts down businesses
"The law was adopted to expedite starting up companies, but this has caused many problems," said Mayor Juan Carlos Navarro.
In the course of chcking up on the businesses, authorities found that the majority were not operating as they described on the web site. The majority of the violators were restaurants whose main activity was selling alcohol and not food, or places that sold alcohol that had opened too close to a church or a school.
To prevent future problems, the bill will be amended so that any business selling alcohol needs prior permission from the mayor's office.http://mensual.prensa.com/mensual/contenido/2008/03/18/hoy/herald/1298214.html
