Food Service (FS) Program

The objective of the Food Service Program is to provide safe, wholesome food service for all residents and to prevent food-borne illness; these goals are accomplished through a series of inspections. The number of yearly inspections is directly related to the type of license issued to each establishment. In turn, that license is directly related to the type of food served, and how it is prepared (see the License Fee Schedule).

 

All city locations meeting the definition of "food service" delineated in the Ohio Administrative Code Chapter 3717 are inspected at least one to three times per year, based on their risk classification.

 

Examples of food service facilities include, but are not limited to: commercial and non-commercial restaurants, bars, schools, catering operations, hospitals, day care centers, jails, prisons, vending machine locations, mobile food units, and temporary locations.

 

FS operations must submit plans and be approved before commencing operations. Consultations and education are provided to local businesses. Complaints of food borne illnesses are Investigated and resolved. For further information, please contact the program supervisor at (330) 841-2611.

 

Food Establishment (FE) Program

The objective of the Food Establishment Program is also to provide safe, wholesome food, and to prevent food borne illness. This is also accomplished through a series of inspections. The license issued is directly related to the size of the facility (see the License Fee Schedule).

 

All City locations meeting the definition of "retail food establishment" as delineated in the local Ohio Administrative Code Chapter 3717, are inspected at least once annually.

 

Examples of food establishment facilities include, but are not limited to: commercial grocery stores, bars, gas stations, convenience stores, drug stores, jails, temporary locations, and any other facility selling pre-packaged food products.

 

FE operations must submit plans and be approved before commencing operations. Consultations and education are provided to local businesses. Complaints of food borne illnesses are Investigated and resolved. For further information, please contact the program supervisor at (330) 841-2611.
