CMC gets tough with unhygienic eateries

The Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) will come down hard on over 700 eateries, cafeteria owners and small scale hoteliers in the city and the suburbs, who do not provide proper sanitary facilities for customers.

A recent survey revealed that many eateries, cafeterias and hotels in Colombo 7, Fort, Slave Island, town Hall, Pettah, Maradana, Borella, Narahenpita, Bambalapitiya, Wellawatte and the Dematagoda areas have failed to provide sanitary facilities for customers and the facilities do not meet hygienic conditions.

CMS Commissioner Bhadrani Jayawardhane told the Sunday Observer that it was the responsibility of the owners of these eateries to provide proper washrooms and toilets for customers who patronise them. She said the wash rooms and toilets are in a dilapidated condition in some small hotels and eating houses and customers take a risk when using them.

A senior CMC official said that some cafeterias and eating houses near schools in colombo failed to provide even drinking water for customers as they prefer to sell bottled water at exorbitant prices.
