The Board of Health will be hosting a Public Meeting on March 18th at 6:00 pm during Health Protection Services Committee meeting at the Health Department.

At the January 28, 2015 Health Protection Committee for the Peoria County Board of Health, the committee discussed the need for a new food safety inspection tool for use by the Health Department in the performance of restaurant inspections.

The new best practice model presented for possible use in Peoria County is an FDA risk-based inspection tool using principles of Hazardous Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) to identify and correct the risk factors most likely to lead to the spread of bacteria, viruses, and other items that cause foodborne illness. The model instrument evaluates food safety practices and bases inspection results on risk factors, critical violations, and repeat violations. Using the best practice FDA model will allow Health Department staff to provide interventions and control measures to ensure safe food handling, including guidance in developing corrective action plans with food service workers. Here are links to the proposed tool and the rating matrix. Comments may also be submitted via email to

Public Health

The goal of public health is to protect and promote health and prevent disease, illness and injury. Public health interventions range from preventing diseases to promoting healthy lifestyles and from providing sanitary conditions to ensuring safe food and water. Because of public health, the foods we eat are safer; the water we drink is free from contamination, more babies live beyond their 1st birthday and children are healthier due to childhood immunization programs. Here is a document with some scenarios of how public health touches your daily life unknowingly in various ways: Day In Public Health
