The Food Protection and Community Services Division is committed to providing a safe food supply to our community. The division inspects all restaurants and temporary “festival-like” events. We are responsible for the licensing and inspection of all public pools/spas and provide sanitary surveys for in home day care, foster care and adoptions.

Handwashing: Clean Hands – Save Lives
According to the United States Centers for Disease Control, hand washing is the single most effective way to prevent the spread of disease.
Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. If clean, running water is not accessible, as is common in many parts of the world, use soap and available water. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol to clean hands.
