Food Hygiene


Environmental Health works with food service establishments to ensure their products are not a source of food-borne illness. This includes the following categories:

  • Assisted Living Facilities
  • Bars and Lounges that do not prepare food
  • Civic/Fraternal Organizations
  • Detention Facilities
  • Schools (Public and Private)
  • Theaters

Depending on the type of facility, inspections are performed on a pre-determined schedule (Example: Schools = 4x/yr). During inspections, we look for food handling practices, personal hygiene, operation and maintenance, and general sanitation.
