Today at City Hall another set of Sanitation staffers came to partake in the Stress Management discussion with Ms. Juliet Simmons of the Ministry of Health and Ms. Ingrid Bonilla of Cleopatra White Clinic.

Health Inspection at the BTL Park

In every organization there are always the people you see and the ones you don’t, both of which are working diligently to improve the quality of service within that organization. Within the Belize City Council the Sanitation Inspectors definitely fall within that category. Here we have Ms. Tiffany Diaz conducting a routine inspection at the BTL Park at one of several food kiosks. Our inspectors procedurally check for each vendor’s Food Handler’s card, proper attire requirements, satisfactory establishment, as well as for all goods to be cleaned and covered according to health regulations and finally to ensure proper garbage disposal guidelines are upheld.

If anyone would like more information on the inspection process kindly contact our main office at 227-7205/2308/4114 for further details.
