Food Establishments

With the use of inspection and education, the Environmental Health Section staff works with the operators and employees of food establishments to ensure that safe food is served to the public. Our goal is the prevention of foodborne illness. The accomplishment of this goal lies in preventive measures of causing foodborne illness at home.
