This includes draining of all grease/oil in the deep fat fryers, removing all garbage, cleaning out all sinks, and sweeping and mopping the floors. Cleaning materials will be provided by the Civic Center Staff person on duty. Kitchen Check List Form must be signed and dated after event or a cleaning fee will be assessed.
o Any equipment, food, beverage, etc. remaining in the kitchen area for more than 24 hours becomes the property of the Crystal Coast Civic Center (unless prior arrangements have been made with the Civic Center Director)
