Temporary event permits are necessary for anybody – including businesses, individuals, or organizations – who is selling or giving food away to the public at a fixed location for a fixed period of time. Events over 14 consecutive days, in conjunction with a single event, may submit for up to two consecutive temporary event permits.
Food served from temporary food service establishments is subject to the same potential contamination as that served in fixed food service establishments, therefore required by law to be permitted.
To obtain a temporary event permit:
- Contact the Food Protection Program at the Health Department
- Complete the permit application 30 days prior to the event.
- Pay the appropriate fee by check or money order made payable to the City Treasurer.
- The permit will be delivered at the time of the inspection if all required items are in place and operational.
|Temporary food service permit||14 days prior to event day||13-7 days prior to event day||6-3 days prior to event day||Less than 3 days prior to event day|
|3-14 day operation||$168||$201||$241||$290|
There is a $139 reinspection fee if a temporary event requires a reinspection.
