Citations

The Johnson County Health Department has the authority to issue citations for critical & non-critical violations of the Indiana Retail Food Establishment Sanitation Requirement Rule 410 IAC 7-24.  The Indiana Civil Penalty Rule 7-23 gives local health departments authority to assess civil penalties in local enforcement actions against violators of the food rule.  A range of civil penalties is established to allow flexibility for the health authority and the courts.  It should be noted that violations of the food law that have a higher public health significance are assigned a broader range of potential civil penalties with a maximum of $1,000.  These violations, if left uncorrected, have a much higher probability of causing illness or injury to the public.  The ability to seek civil penalties should assure improved compliance, and better protection for consumers against Food-borne disease.

There is an additional charge for all charge card transactions.
