I sat around for 6-hours yesterday while waiting, with my attorney, David Hartman, to oppose a planning and zoning application(C22, C23) by the owner of the Polvos Mexican restaurant here in Austin.
While speaking, I mentioned that the restaurant regularly washed their commercial grills in the back yard of the residential house and that the dirty water and fat was washed out, down the driveway and into the gutter, and drains, which empty directly into Town Lake, unfiltered.
The owners representative denied he knew anything about this, or how it could happen. Well here are a series of pictures which show the grill tables being cleaned. They are washed in the large aluminum tub, which is never emptied. After that they scrub them clean with the use of some form of chemicals, they they hose them down.
I’ve no idea what laws, rules are being broken here, but I assume that the act of cleaning the commercial equipment in a residential lot, is as they say on University Challenge, your starter for 10.
The the record, the Planning Commission voted to reject the application, 9-0.
