For any events taking place within the City of Sugar Land where food or beverages will be offered to the public (for free or for sale):
The senior sanitarian will determine whether a temporary food establishment permit is required and will aid in the permitting process.
During the process, the event coordinator must provide the senior sanitarian with a list of all vendors participating in the event, and the event coordinator, as well as, each of the vendors will be required to complete a temporary food establishment permit application. These applications will be due to the senior sanitarian one full week before the event. In some instances, the senior sanitarian may require applications be submitted earlier than a week before the event; however, all deadlines will be discussed with the event coordinator during initial contact. Staff may be unable to process applications received after this deadline.
Once all applications are approved, the event coordinator will be notified that payment can be made through the Treasury Department at city hall and upon receipt of payment, the permits will be provided to the event coordinator for distribution to the vendors at the event. Event coordinators / vendors who fail to obtain the required permit may receive a citation and be required to cease operations.
