WEST PALM BEACH - Each week, the Division of Hotels and Restaurants in the Florida Department of Business & Professional Registration lists the businesses that were forced to close to address an emergency health situation. The Safety and Sanitation Inspectors take this action to fix conditions that pose an elevated risk to the health, safety or welfare of the public or the employees. This may be lack of hot water, sewage backups or overflows, fire damage, pest infestation, or inadequate refrigeration.
An emergency closure is not a disciplinary action.
According to records from the State Division of Hotels and Restaurants, the following restaurants were issued an emergency closure in 2014 for the following counties Martin, Palm Beach, Okeechobee, St. Lucie, and Indian River.
