How clean is your food? If you eat out in the City that may be a valid question to ask these days.
That may not seem like a glaring gap but the department says the shortage means restaurants may only be getting one visit a year from a health inspector and trouble restaurants may not be getting the follow up they need because of the shortage.
Each restaurant in the City requires two check ups a year. The department tells the paper it is trying to hire more inspectors but the process and training can take awhile. If you are interested in becoming a food inspector, the department is looking for a few good employees.
