City Bar Ordered Closed By County Health Department

JAMESTOWN-The Outback, a bar located at 114 Jones and Gifford Ave., was recently ordered to close and cease all operations immediately according to the County Department of Health and Human Services.

Owner Edward Bowles reportedly failed to maintain a valid permit to operate a “Food Service Establishment”, a violation of the New York State Food Code.

“This is an unfortunate situation but despite our efforts to work with the The Outback (A.K.A The Bar), minimum requirements to maintain a valid permit to operate a food service establishment have not been met,” said County Health Official Christine Schuyler.
