KENILWORTH NJ - The Department of Public Works has cut the grass and is currently performing general maintenance on the front end of the Blackthorn Restaurant and Irish Pub located at 651 North Michigan Avenue.

The deadline for the Blackthorn to clean up the property was extended by a week, but the restaurant and pub failed to comply. After the work is completed a lien will be put on the property under the property maintence code which by ordinance if after notification a resident or business does not maintain their property a lien will be placed.

There is no discussion as to who will take over the property. Before the property can be conveyed the lien must be satisfied.
