Public comment sought on food code
The King County Board of Health is seeking public input as it considers adoption of a new food code next month.
A meeting will be held at 9:30 a.m. Thursday at the Northshore Public Health Center, 10808 N.E. 145th Street, Bothell. Call the county’s environmental-health department at 206-296-4632 for more information.
Among other changes to the current code, the proposed food code will have a new method for determining restaurant inspections and permit pricing.
Currently the permit fee is based on restaurant size: the larger the restaurant, the higher the fee. The new code would use a risk-based approach. For instance, more-complex menus and food-preparation techniques carry a higher risk of food-borne illness. That requires more-frequent inspections and higher permit fees. Simple menus with a lower risk of food-borne illness would require fewer yearly inspections and a lower permit fee.
