In June the Clay County Public Health Department announced local winners for their yearly Food Safety and Pool Safety Excellence awards.
“We are grateful for the hard work these establishments put in last year to not only meet but exceed the health department’s high standards of safety,” said Robert Gilliland, section chief of Environmental Health Protection. “We appreciate their partnership with us to protect the public from food borne illnesses, waterborne illnesses and other hazards.”
