Health Inspections are conducted on a routine basis to look for "critical" and "non-critical" health code violations. The Health Division also investigates all complaints about food service establishments located in Lewisville.

Health permits are required for all food establishments including restaurants, bars that serve food, grocery stores, convenience stores, businesses that sell retail food product, mobile food units, child care facilities and schools.
