“We do have code officers out all the time, even during holidays,” he said. “We’re going to be out there making sure people are kept safe.”
Paulino, the part owner at Areito Bar & Grill in Hollywood, said he wasn’t at all surprised to see county officials crack down on the Wharf.
“Nobody should be surprised,” he said. “[Code officers] pass by my place every weekend.”
He said he wasn’t sure whether he’ll see them this holiday weekend.
“They don’t let us know,” he said. But if they say they’ll be out, “then you should believe them.”
