MODESTO (CBS13) – A Modesto restaurant chain is paying the price for not following the rules.
Velvet Grill and Creamery paid the city $10,000 dollars after violating the city’s indoor dining rules amid the pandemic.
The chain had racked up $90,000 in fines for serving customers indoors and ignoring cease and desist orders.
But the $10,000 settlement was reached after the chain’s attorney reached out to the city.
The settlement states that Modesto will use the money to help small businesses.
