County OKs sliding doors for Windmill Farms

Original post made on Mar 10, 2008

A plan to build an enclosed space at Windmill Farms for cut melons, bulk food, dairy and meat was approved by the health department last week. Automatic sliding doors are scheduled to be put in at the mom-and-pop shop and are expected to cost owners of the 33-year-old shop nearly $40,000. Temporary doors are now in place.

If the County is short on cash, I recommend they trim the County Health Department, they obviously have too much time / cash on their hands. They are worred about 'food that can be contaminated in the open air'. What about farmer's markets? What about the people in 'enclosed' stores handling all the food?
The food is grown outside and subject to 'birds and furry creatures' all the time. It is just washed.
I do the same thing. Guess what Couty health..if the food doesn't look good,ripe,healthy..I don't buy it.

I agree with Craig. The County seems to have too much time on their hands. I could see if the fruit stand had one or more compliants, but they haven't. I loved shopping there and plan to support them more because of this.
