Getting the message out


Jack Saracco, middle, and Ethan Young, left, both of the Department of Consumer Affairs, spoke with local diner owner Steve Palakas, who with his brother-in-law owns Olympic Restaurant on the corner of Essex and Delancy Sts., yesterday. Teams of Consumer Affairs staff, elected officials and neighborhood organizations fanned out over the five boroughs on Tuesday to inform local businesses about the city’s Consumer Protection Law and other related laws that cover businesses that require a license, refund policy rules and other issues.
