PERTH AMBOY – Some residents from Thomas Street were not happy with the Poultry Business at 950 Amboy Ave.  They had a petition which circulated in the neighborhood because the conditions at this business, especially the smells.

Councilman Fernando Gonzalez was able to vouch for this. He stated that he visits friends in that neighborhood to play dominos. “After about 10 minutes I couldn’t stay there. The owner of the place did call me after they cleaned the place and it was okay. I contacted the previous owner who always kept it clean. The neighbors just want to have the business kept clean. The current owners are not from Perth Amboy. They only clean just before inspection.”

A Thomas Street Resident spoke again, “There is no freezer in the place and it smells year round.”

Councilman Joel Pabon said, “The Code Enforcement has to go to this business more often.”

The Thomas Street Resident wanted to know, “Does this business have permits to operate 24 hours. They should not be working at 3:00 a.m. Neighbors from 5 blocks away can smell the odors from this business.”

Business Administrator Jillian Barrick followed up on these complaints at the 7/6/15 Caucus Meeting. “There was an inspection done and 2 summons were issued for the owners to update the cleaning procedures.”

Fernando Gonzalez spoke up and said, “This business puts their waste in a dumpster at 7:00 p.m. where it sits there until it’s picked up the next morning. The neighbors have been complaining for 4 years. There is no way they should have a passed inspection sticker. I went by there on Sunday, July 5. You need to go by there between 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. when the heat makes the condition worse.”
