The Environmental Health Department licenses and inspects almost three hundred retail food operations. This includes restaurants, mobile food service units, catering operations, schools, senior food programs, and camps. Inspection reports are available at our office, located at 590 Broadway, Eagle, Colorado.
Restaurants are inspected at least twice a year if they are open year round and at least once a year if they have seasonal operation. Follow-up inspections are conducted at those establishments that have critical violations. Some examples of critical violations include food storage temperature and cooking temperature violations, improper toxic substance storage, failure to properly sanitize food contact surfaces, and training needed for manager and kitchen staff.
Retail food establishments, including catering, temporary/special events and mobile food service operations, are required to have State of Colorado Retail Food Service licenses. For more information on this subject go to our Open/Remodel a Restaurant page.
