The Columbus Public Health board has ruled that Juergen's Bakery must undergo another 120 days of monitoring, but can remain open during that time.

The Columbus Public Health board has ruled that Juergen's Bakery must undergo another 120 days of monitoring, but can remain open during that time.

The decision was made after a July 10 inspection, at which time nine violations, including four critical violations, were found.

Three were corrected during the inspection, including not having a Level Two-trained person in charge on duty.

Also, a plumber was called to fix a damaged faucet and leak in the plumbing of a sink.

On a related note, the board also ruled that health officials continue to monitor Stir Fry 88, located in the Mall at Tuttle Crossing, for an additional 120 days.

The ruling follows a series of run-ins Juergen's has had with city officials since April 20, when the German Village business was closed for three days because of health violations.

Since then, there have been four additional inspections, each turning up at least three violations per visit.

Rosemarie Keidel, who owns the bakery, told the board she had been working diligently to correct the problems.

"I have worked with you and I know you have been patient," she said.

Jose Rodriguez, spokesman for Columbus Public Health, said full-service restaurants generally are inspected at least four times a year.

So, those that are placed under extended monitoring will receive more on-site inspections.

All are done without prior knowledge of the restaurateurs.

Rodriguez said compliance is always the goal.

"The increased monitoring will assist our food safety team in make sure the facility continues to operate according to the standards set forth by Ohio law," he said.

"The health and safety of our residents is always our No. 1 priority."
