Tuolumne County Environmental Health fees were developed to partially defray the cost of our Food Safety Program. Like many of the surrounding jurisdictions, however, we have faced critical staff shortages and staff turnover that have limited our ability to provide the level of service upon which our fees were based.
It is important to the Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors that fees reflect the level of service being provided. The Board has therefore authorized a one-time fee reduction for the next calendar year (2022) that can be offered to facilities meeting the following two conditions:
- The manager or owner needs to attend a 2-hour food safety workshop that focuses on the five most critical risk factors for foodborne illness and share the information with their food service workers, and
- The manager or owner needs to complete a self-inspection form designed to specifically target the five risk factors
For those choosing to participate in TuolumneFood2022, your 2022 Permit-to-Operate fee will be reduced to $50.
- A Workshop Schedule that provides multiple training options to accommodate a variety of work schedules
- A Workshop Evaluation for to obtain your feedback and verify your attendance at one of the workshops
- The Workshop PowerPoint (Computer Screen Version) that will guide you through the self-inspection process and provide information for you to share with your food service workers
- The Workshop PowerPoint (The Hand Out Version) that will guide you through the self-inspection process and provide information for you to share with your food service workers.
- A Self-Inspection Form that that focuses on the five most critical risk factors for foodborne illness
