The Department inspects food service facilities according to food safety standards and responds to food safety and health complaints.  All restaurants, grocery stores and cafeterias require a permit and are inspected according to the State Food Sanitation Code in conjunction with an ordinance passed by the Montgomery County Board.  The department issues food permits for temporary food service occasions and food stands. Regulates and administers enforcement of the local food safety ordinance and Illinois food service sanitation code including, revoking a food permit for the closure of any facility that has been the source of a food-borne illness or that refuses to meet the requirements.  The Department offers Food Service Sanitation Certification courses.
