  • Review plans for construction of new food service establishments or the remodeling of existing establishments
  • Investigate food-related complaints and food-borne illnesses
  • Provide training and testing for food workers
  • Coordinate with other public agencies at the state and federal level to insure safe and wholesome food is made available to the public
  • Provide educational and technical advice to managers of food service establishments and the public
