Great Wall's owners and management for a revocation hearing resulting from a series of poor inspections and closings since its opening in 2009.
In a hearing that lasted for more than two hours, two of the three board members voted to give the restaurant a "last chance."
"This will be a last resort," said Glenn French during the last hearing. "No more critical violations can happen. I will move that it's an immediate shutdown and revocation will be on the table. And that's pretty much where it will go."
Terry said that the restaurant will remain closed until the next Board of Health hearing, which was originally scheduled for June 12 at 6:15 p.m. The owners have asked to meet with the board sooner if possible. Terry is awaiting responses from board members to see if it is possible.
Update: Great Wall will meet with the Board of Health for a public revocation hearing on Wednesday, June 6, at 6 p.m. at the Town Hall, Conference Room B.
