SAN ANTONIO (July 29, 2014) – The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District (Metro Health) will conduct mobile vending licensing inspection in the field beginning on Aug. 5.
Metro Health is making the change to better accommodate customers, who will no longer need to drive their units to the Development Business Center at 1901 S. Alamo to obtain a license.
“When Metro Health consolidated its Food and Environmental inspectors at the Claude Black Center, we also wanted to change our operations to better serve our customers. Meeting the stakeholders in their communities is one of these changes,” said Dr. Vincent Nathan, Assistant Health Director.
Mobile vendors may schedule an appointment for inspection by calling 210-207-0135. Mobile units must be fully operable at the time of inspection. Inspections will be conducted where the unit sets up to sell or another site chosen by the vendor inside City limits. Inspections will not be conducted on residential property. For questions about the new procedure, please call 207-0135.
