    Inspections Intelligence

    Tuesday, May 7th 2019
    Time and Location To Be Announced

    If you've got a brick and mortar location, you're faced with some form of inspection. Meet with the heads of various inspections departments to discuss how you can be more prepared prior to inspectors visiting your establishment, and how the City can build a smoother inspections partnership with our businesses.

    Have a particular situation in mind that could have gone better? We've got a survey open right now that will help inform the conversation structure for this class. Please take a few short minutes to fill it out!
