Food Sampling Program
Mrs. Mitrione said that the laboratory does not want the Health Department to send too many samples at one time and none past Wednesday.† She said that may cause a problem with Ella getting her inspections done.† Mrs. Mitrione proposed hiring someone to do that job and said she had someone in mind.† She said they would do the sampling twice a year instead of the four times that had been done in the past.†
Mrs. Mitrione stated the mammography van is scheduled at the Community Center again on July 21st.† She said they plan to have it there every six months.
Food Safety Training
Mrs. Mitrione said fifteen people took the ServSafe class in January and all passed but one.† That person can re-take the exam if he wishes to.
Mrs. Mitrione reported they had scheduled a three-hour class to train the employees of UDF.† It snowed that day and UDF did not pay the employees to be there, so none of the employees showed up and no one called to let us know they werenít coming.
There was discussion among board members about whether offering the class for free is the best way or not.†
