BEH temporarily shuts down 2 in August


The Bureau of Environmental Health temporarily shut down Ladder Beach Restaurant and JD Store II in August for serious violations of health and sanitation purposes. Both have since reopened.

Ladder Beach Restaurant was closed down for one day, Aug. 7, to allow BEH to re-inspect the establishment. The restaurant passed the second inspection and was able to operate the next day.

JD Store II voluntarily closed its doors last Aug. 22 and would later open and pass the BEH’s standards five days later.
