The Westfield Board of Health (the Board) held a meeting on June 4, 2018.
The Board held a hearing for a restaurant that was subject to three consecutive Conditionally Satisfactory ratings. The Westfield Regional Health Department (the Department) representative presented the findings that caused the ratings. The restaurant ownership, who also manage the restaurant, presented their efforts to address the deficiencies and the measures they would take to ensure compliance with the sanitary code. The Board established conditions, to be enforced by the Department, to encourage the restaurant ownership to comply.
The Board reviewed the Department reports for May 2018. Forty-five inspections were conducted. Forty-one of the inspections resulted in satisfactory ratings, two inspections did not involve ratings changes, two inspections resulted in conditional ratings. The conditional ratings require that the food establishments make corrections to deficient conditions and prior to a mandatory reinspection.
