Health Officer

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


East Stroudsburg Borough has a certified Health Officer, and is responsible for public health-related matters within the Borough, including the licensing and inspecting of restaurants and public eating establishments.

All restaurants must apply for and maintain an annual health license from the Borough.  The annual fee for the health license is based on the number of seats within the eating establishment.

Restaurants are inspected annually by the Health Officer for basic health code safety standards in order to maintain their license.  A re-inspection fee of $150 is charged for any re-inspection required by the failure of an establishment to pass an inspection by the Health Officer, and a $200 fee for the second and any subsequent re-inspections.  Any establishment which fails to correct a health code violation, or fails to take remedial action ordered by the Health Officer, shall be guilty of a summary offense and, upon conviction thereof, shall be subject to a fine of up to $1,000.

Anyone with questions concerning the health license procedures or requirements should contact the East Stroudsburg Borough Office during normal office hours.  This is in addition to the state requirement that any public eating establishment must have at least one supervisory employee certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture as a Food Employee per Title 3 of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, Sections 6501-6510.  This certification must be renewed every five years.  Educational providers for obtaining the necessary food handling instruction, as well as the state application form for Food Employee Certification are available at the Borough Office.  This certification is one of the requirements for obtaining the Borough Health License.
