Licensing and Inspections

The Vernon County Health Department serves as the licensing and regulating authority in Vernon County for:

  • Restaurants
  • Pools
  • Campgrounds
  • Recreation/ Education Camps
  • Temporary Food Stands
  • Body Art Facilities (tattoo and body piercing)
  • Retail Food Establishments
    • Grocery Stores, Bakeries, Convenience Stores, etc.

Licensing year is from July 1st through June 30.  Renewals for licenses must be returned before July 1st to avoid a late fee being assessed.  Licenses are not transferable.  All fees (license fee, pre-inspection fee, etc.) must be paid before license is issued.  Application for a new facility/change of owner can be found here.

All facilities are required by local ordinance to be inspected at least once a year.  Re-inspections are also required for facilities with priority items (formerly critical violations).  Pre-inspections are required for new facilities, change of owners, and significant remodels to existing facilities.
