HR Environmental Health Trying To Keep Up With Workload

Hood River County Environmental Health says it’s trying to keep up with applications and inspections, but it’s difficult.  The department’s Ian Stromquist says between new construction and regular inspections, they have a full workload.  Stromquist reminds people who are involved in construction and the food industry to plan ahead to allow plenty of time for the department to get to them, adding they want to serve.  He adds the best time to first contact his department is in the design stages of construction.
