This page is dedicated to everything Restaurant and Food Service. It is the goal of Environmental Services to help the local food establishments educate themselves and all of their staff with increased knowledge and practices for food handling and food safety by increasing information and communication.
Environmental Services may periodically publish a newsletter, THE HEALTHY SPOON
, and post it on this website. The newsletter is intended to be a means to educate food staff on how inspections are conducted in Rowlett, how certain food codes are interpreted, and to address certain violations that seem to be on the rise. In addition, there may be articles relevant to foodborne illness pathogens. If there is a topic you would like to see addressed in the news letter, please feel free to email
Environmental Services Manager Chuck Dumas.
The Resource Center contains links to The Texas Food Establishment Regulations (TFER) and many other food safety and food inspection documents. Environmental Services will also post the Food Establishment Construction Guidelines and any other relevant documents here.
Again, the goal is to increase the communication with our local food vendors in hopes of helping all to be a successful member of our Rowlett!
