If you missed the September membership meeting, we heard from Eyob Mazengia, with Seattle King County Public Health, highlighting the changes to the Food Safety Rating System.

Here are a few resources and highlights from the presentation:

  • The goal of the changes is to make it easier for customers to access food safety information and reduce the risk of food borne illnesses.
  • The zip code rating adjustment system is being removed and all restaurants will be compared to the same standards. This will make it easier for operators to know what to do to improve their food safety rating.
  • Public Health is committed to improving inspector consistency through staff training and material standardization.

Here is the flyer that was shared during the meeting: Food Safety Rating System flyer.

Additionally, the SRA’s Austin Miller led a conversation on the Seattle Hospitality for Progress (SHP) PAC recommendations for general election endorsements for Seattle City Council races.

Because four of seven City Council incumbents are not running for reelection, there is an incredible opportunity to change the makeup of the council to be much more business friendly.

In order to make these changes, it is imperative that the Seattle Restaurant Alliance support candidates who will be receptive to our issues.

Stay tuned to the SRA website in the coming weeks to see our endorsements for City Council.
