In regards to the Application for Mobile Unit Plan Review:

These items were not provided. If you are not certified in food safety, you must be able to pass a demonstration of knowledge test prior to the health department permit being issued. It is highly recommended that you take a food safety class if you have not previously. Class information is enclosed with this letter.
2. Page 4, you stated you will use a meat thermometer to take temperatures of foods. Please ensure you have proper thermometers. Meat thermometers are not always accurate.

6. Page 6, Section E, water supply: You stated the water tank inlet was not less than ¾” in diameter. This is a requirement for mobile units.
Page 6, you stated the fresh water supply tank is only 10 gallons. Will this be enough water to meet the operational needs?

8. The service area vendor letter and commissary letter were both submitted blank. Will you be storing all foods on the mobile unit? Where will you fill your water tanks and dispose of waste water?
