After some trash talk, C.B. 1 OK’s beer at Burger King

“I have complained numerous times about the garbage,” said committee member Pat Moore, whose building faces Liberty. “The garage is disgusting— its on the ground, its leaking, its running.”

Moore said she has called the Dept. of Sanitation several times about the problem.
