The end of the business day Friday is the last day for food establishments to submit their food ordinance paperwork to the Laclede County Health Department. After Friday, businesses are considered delinquent and could face consequences. Laclede County Health Department Administrator, Charla Baker, says nearly 60 businesses have yet to submit their paperwork to the department………..
Baker says any business that serves food is subject to the ordinance……….
Businesses that have not submitted the paperwork by the end of the year will receive a reminder from the department. If they fail to submit the paperwork after that point the ordinance does give the Laclede County Health Department the authority to close that business until they comply.
