Owners of Restaurants, Tourist Accommodations & Public Pools Can Now Renew Annual Permits at Fulton County Gov't Center | Print |

Fulton County’s Environmental Health Services wants owners of restaurants/food service establishments and tourist accommodations along with operators of public swimming pools to know that, effective immediately, the office of Accounts Receivable, commonly known as the permit office has moved from the Aldredge Health Center and is now located   in the Finance Department, Suite 7001, of the Fulton County Government Center, 141 Pryor Street SW., Atlanta, GA 30303.   Please note the change of address when paying annual permit renewals by mail or in person.   In-person payments can be made on the 7th Floor of the Fulton County Government Center at the customer service window.   Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.   For more information about permit renewals, call the Accounts Receivable office at 404-613-4321.

The office was relocated to consolidate administrative staffing and services with the main Finance Department. ¬† ‚ÄúThis will streamline our workflow and allow us to more efficiently process the thousands of renewing permits we handle each year,‚ÄĚ explains Environmental Health Services Director Ellis Jones.

All restaurants/food service establishments, tourist accommodations and public pools must have a permit and a current license from the health department to operate in Fulton County.     Subsequently, annual inspections and annual permit renewals are also required by law.

Environmental health specialists routinely inspect these public facilities to ensure they are maintained in a clean and sanitary manner according to Georgia law. With a team of 30 environmental specialists, Fulton County’s Environmental Health staff annually inspects more than 5,200 restaurants/food establishments, nearly 250 hotels/motels and tourists accommodations and more than 1,840 public swimming pools, all located within the 14 municipalities in Fulton County.   Area residents and visitors can enjoy local dining and lodging venues with confidence and safety, partially due to the permitting requirements and routine inspections by Fulton County’s environmental health inspectors.
