New City Food Code
The purpose of this board bill is to repeal Ordinance 68597, which contains most of the sections of the existing Food Code for the City (from the 2009 Edition of the National Food Code published by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Food and Drug Administration), and adopt as the new Food Code for the City the terms of the most recent 2017 Edition of the National Food Code published by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Food and Drug Administration, with local revisions and amendments. The board bill also repeals Ordinance 71106 and adopts the social justice/equity aspects of the revised Temporary Food Service provisions as part of a comprehensive Food Code. Finally, the board bill proposes an updated fee structure to more closely cover costs of the City food control program, to go into effect July 1, 2022.
