Restaurant Inspections

Restaurants, fairs and festivals, and temporary events are some of the types of food service establishments that Environmental Health regulates.  Our main purpose is to ensure that food service operators are following proper procedures to minimize the risk of dining patrons becoming ill.  Environmental Health enforces state regulations that regulate food service establishments such as restaurants, mobile food service operations, school and institutional cafeterias, and catering services.

Things to Know

Some of the functions of the Environmental Health agency regarding food service involve training food service personnel, review of plans prior to construction, permitting establishments, and conducting inspections to insure code compliance. Use the links below to find the documentation you need.

Posters and signs frequently used by food services are available on the right sidebar.
