BOND COUNTY BOARD PROPOSING FEE FOR FOOD SERVICE INSPECTIONS

The Bond County Board met Tuesday, May 7, at 9:00 a.m., in the County Board Room.  James Tarasuik was appointed to the Zoning Board of Appeals.  The board approved county aid for Mulberry Grove to replace a culvert at the intersection of Fox Avenue and Dunkard Road.

Penny Dixon and Maxine Barth presented a proposal regarding the Food Service Sanitation Ordinance.  Currently, the Bond County Health Department does not charge for food service inspections.  Dixon explained most counties have an annual charge for the inspections. For Category I inspections, Fayette County charges $130.00, Madison County charges $325.00, and Montgomery County charges $100.00.  Bond County is proposing an annual fee of $75.00 for Category I establishments.  Dixon explained the resolution must first be approved by the state.  The board approved the resolution which will go into effect July 1, pending its approval from the state.  Letters will be sent to area restaurants informing them of the change.

The next meeting of the Bond County Board is scheduled for Tuesday, May 21.
You may see the full county board meeting Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. on Newwave Channel 12.
