The Food Safety Program is primarily responsible for protecting the community against foodborne illnesses resulting from health code violations and improper handling of food. It is responsible for inspections of food service operations, temporary food service operations, food vending machines, micro-markets, mobile food operations, and retail food establishments. Inspection frequency and license fees are based on the Risk Level Classification.
For new or remodeled operations, plans must be submitted to the Tuscarawas County Health Department for approval prior to construction. Scroll down to find our Food Plan Review Application.
