Issues have arisen in the past regarding Council’s ability to deal with businesses which have serious breaches of food safety. Council has also recognised that many good food businesses and consumers now expect premises selling food to be graded.
The proposed grading system would allow informed consumer decision making and provide both a reward for quality performance and an incentive for improving operation.
Council is interested in knowing the community’s views on these proposals and invites written submissions in relation to these draft bylaws. If you want to make a submission please have it in by 12pm (noon) Friday 10 October 2014.
