The Health Division provides the following services:
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. These inspections are conducted on a routine basis to ensure compliance with the standards set forth by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
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.
All new or remodeled food establishments are required to submit plans to be reviewed for compliance with health code regulations.

In addition to the health permit, a certificate of occupancy may also be required. Review the Food Service Packet for a guide on new food establishments.
A valid permit is required to operate a temporary food establishment. Examples of temporary food establishment events are parades, fairs, festivals, exhibits, block parties, street dances, carnivals, circuses, temporary commercial out-door amusements and sporting events.
Mobile vendors include food trucks, snow cone trucks and ice cream pushcarts. All are permitted and inspected by Health Services.
The State of Texas requires that backflow prevention assemblies be installed on all hazardous cross-connections in an effort to keep our water supply safe. These assemblies must be tested and certified by a licensed tester on an annual basis to ensure they are functioning properly.
A vehicle operated for the purpose of transporting waste requires a permit. Each vehicle operating in Lewisville must undergo an application and inspection process prior to issuance of a permit.
