The licensing period for all food service operations is one year beginning the first day of March and ending the last day of February of the succeeding year. Fees are dependent on classification and size of the operation. There are penalties for non-compliance with these regulations.
The Food Service department inspects food service operations, temporary and mobile food services, and vending locations to insure public safety. When a health code violation is discovered, the problem is explained and corrective measures are taken. This protects against food borne illnesses resulting from improper food preparation, handling, and storage as defined by the health code regulations.
