Section 2. ADDITIONAL FEES FOR REINSPECTION
 

For the majority of food establishments, one, two or three routine inspections annually (based on risk) are sufficient to maintain compliance with the regulations of the State Sanitary code, Chapter X, and provide adequate protection to the health and well-being of patrons and the general public. For some establishments however, a risk-based inspection schedule is inadequate and more frequent visits by the Health Agent or Inspector or other actions are found to be necessary. In some instances, a number of reinspections are necessary to assure the correction of critical violations or previously cited violations and more frequent comprehensive inspections may be needed to maintain an acceptable level of compliance. In the course of this type of intensified follow-up, it may be necessary for the Board of Health and/or the Health Agent to issue Order Letters, schedule and conduct administrative hearings and take action to suspend or revoke permits. Additionally, food establishments which give rise to repetitive citizen complaints also require closer inspectional attention as do those involved in alleged outbreaks of food-borne illnesses.

It is both fair and equitable that establishments which, by reason of negligence and/or non-compliance, require expenditure of additional time and effort by the Board of Health staff should pay some of the additional costs involved.

A reinspection will be required at any establishment which is found to have serious, critical and/or repeated violations of Chapter X of the State Sanitary Code during a routine or recheck inspection, an inspection based on a complaint or an investigation of a food-borne illness. A fee of $100.00 will be charged for each reinspection which is required, payable no later than the time of the scheduled reinspection.

No permit renewals will be issued until all fees have been paid in full.

The Health Agent may waive the fee for a reinspection as otherwise required above, when the reason for the reinspection involves any of the following:  items are on order but not yet in, or repairs have been scheduled but not yet completed.

A refusal to waive the fee by the Health Agent may be appealed to the Milton Board of Health. The decision of the Board of Health in all such cases shall be final.
