Beginning in January 2017, Montrose County Health Department Staff will no longer be providing restaurant and childcare inspections in Ouray County. Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) will be providing inspections instead. Coincidentally, retail food establishment fees will increase starting in 2017, as determined by House Bill 1401. Both of the changes (changes in inspectors and increase of fees) are not related, and merely coincidental. The CDPHE inspectors do not have assigned counties; therefore, retail food establishments may have different inspectors when inspections are conducted. For more information regarding Retail Food Establishment Inspections, please contact the Ouray County Public Health Agency at (970) 325-4670.
