Food Safety Information

Including Food-borne Illness and Food Safety Tips


If we find valid complaints regarding sanitary conditions in food service, hotels or motels, or spas and pools, we notify the business owners and require them to make repairs or changes needed to remove the public health hazard. We also respond when we receive complaints about mosquito breeding areas on public or private land.
