Environmental Health/Food

***We will no longer be accepting food permit applications for the Downtown Mermaid Promenade on September 25th, 2021***


Environmental Health provides education, enforcement, and resources in response to a wide range of issues which affect the environment, health, safety, and general well-being of our community.


We promote public health and safety by permitting and inspecting a variety of food establishments and on-site sewage facilities (OSSF) to ensure compliance with State and Local Health Codes. In addition, we investigate different types of public health nuisances/issues within the City of San Marcos jurisdiction.
