Health Department

The summer season is sneaking up on us, so make sure to apply for all seasonal food service or swimming pool permits well in advance of the rush! Applications are required to be submitted with a 30 day lead-time to the opening date of the pool or restaurant in order to allow time for any corrections and inspections to be made.
