Food Establishment Inspections
The Health Department inspects restaurants and food service facilities, hospitals, nursing homes, schools and commercial day care facilities.  If the facility presents an imminent health hazard to the public, all operations will be halted. A facility may not operate until a re-inspection is made and the facility is back in compliance.
