(ABC 6 News) – A restaurant in Austin was denied its chance at renewing its food license, following a drug bust last week.
The Austin City council voted unanimously Tuesday to deny Wing Bazaars’s application for renewal of its food license, based on recent events.
During the discussion, the council and Austin police agreed that based on recent events, ‘the restaurant is a threat to the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of Austin and that operating in a safe and legal manner is something the city takes incredibly seriously.’
