Food Safety Services

The Health Department carries out the state-mandated food program requirements as set forth in the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) and Ohio Administrative Code (OAC). The Health Department issues Food Service Operation/Retail Food Establishment and vending licenses in March to all food businesses within Springdale.  These state-mandated programs require routine inspections of each facility. The Health Department offers ServSafe® food safety training classes to restaurant managers and employees to enhance their food safety knowledge and to prevent foodborne illness.
