Health, sanitation standards for food establishments adopted

The Mount Vernon City Council unanimously approved the adoption of health and sanitation standards for food and food establishments at their meeting Monday night, April 9.

The city plans to contract with a third party for the inspection service. The frequency of inspections is based on the category of the establishment under the State of Texas Food Establishment rules.
