The owner of an East Main Street lodging house has addressed sanitary, building and fire code violations, Director of Public Health Paul McNulty said today.
Rasheed Warab appeared before selectmen Sept. 25 during a public hearing on the issues at his 13-unit site at 8 East Main St. Selectmen voted 4-0 to require all violations to be corrected by Oct. 31, Otherwise, they said, Warab's lodging house license would be suspended Nov. 1 until all violations are corrected to the satisfaction of health, building and fire departments.
During the Sept. 25 hearing, attorney Peter Kachajian Jr. said Warab had addressed "approximately 90 percent" of the health code violations that the Worcester Housing Court has ordered him to correct by Oct. 31.
McNulty and Town Sanitarian Steven Baccari said today that all violations in town that they noted in their October reports to the board of health have been corrected.
McNulty's report included issues at the North Star Youth Forum, the Tavolino Ristorante and Gourmet Pizza, as well as the lodging house.
Baccari's report included issues at Stop & Shop on Lyman Street.
Baccari also noted that he, McNulty and Health Inspector Terry Gilchrist visited the Marriott Residence Inn in October.
"The Inn wants to add more seating (>40) and renovate," Baccari wrote.
"They have no plans to expand their small kitchen, which probably is not big enough to accommodate the additional seating or meals that will be served."
