After, review of your application the <br />health department would like to recommend that facilities be provided for participants and/or <br />spectators to utilize the restroom during the event. Facilities can be in the form of a sanitary port-a-pody <br />or a permanent establishment. If you already have plans to do so, this letter just simply servers as a <br />reminder. For reference the general rule of thumb for port-a-pody’s and events is 3 port-a-pody’s for <br />each gender for the first 500 people and 1 additional port-a-pody for each gender per additional 100 <br />people. <br /> <br />If food and beverage is to be purchased and consumed during the event, all food and beverage should <br />be pre-packaged; otherwise, a temporary food permit is required. If the event is to be catered, a <br />temporary food permit is not required; however, the catering service must be permitted by the Kittitas <br />County Public Health Department. If the event is to be served by a permanent food establishment; than <br />the establishment must have a current food service permit. All garbage generated by the event should <br />be contained appropriately so not to litter the surrounding environment and should be disposed of in a <br />proper manner. The health department highly encourages that events make an effort to recycle some of <br />the waste that is generated by the event. <br /> <br />Should you need additional assistance or have further questions please don’t hesitate to contact our <br />department by phone at 509-962-7515. <br /> <br />Sincerely, <br /> <br />James Rivard <br />Environmental Health Supervisor <br />Interim Co-Administrator Kittitas County Public Health Department <br /> <br />Cc: BOCC
