Whose responsibility is it to pay for the clean-up?
"Restaurant says it will share costs of grease spill cleanup"
Mulligans says it is partly the city's fault because of the ballroom upstairs. Just one problem--that little kitchen is only a prep facility--they don't fry food. Mulligans says it is the city's responsibility per their lease to maintain the grease traps. Normally I would think there is probably something to that as the city maintains NOTHING. However, under a typical Repair and Maintenance section of our restaurant merchants' leases, it is the tenant's responsibility to maintain and repair grease traps. It would be hard to imagine that Mulligans was given an exception. City Manager Bornstein says maintaining the grease traps is a condition of their permit.
