Board Action Request

Item Description:
Establish a public hearing on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. to obtain public comment on the proposed revisions to Ordinance 3: Food Protection

BE IT RESOLVED, that a public hearing to obtain comment on proposed revisions to Hennepin County Ordinance 3: Food Protection, be held before the Health and Human Services Committee of the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday February 12, 2019, at 1:30 p.m., or as soon thereafter as is practicable, in Room A-2400 of the Hennepin County Government Center, in the city of Minneapolis; and that the Clerk of the Board be directed to publish notice of the public hearing.


In 2018 The Minnesota State Legislature amended MN Rules 4626, commonly called the State Food Code. This new Rule went into effect January 1, 2019. The Hennepin County Delegation Agreements with the Minnesota Departments of Health and Agriculture require the Hennepin County Board of Health to incorporate this amended Rule and other applicable MN Statutes into Hennepin County Ordinance 3 by March 4, 2019. This public hearing is required due to the necessity for a change in the Ordinance language.
