No person shall operate a day-care center within the Township of Irvington unless it has been inspected by the Irvington Department of Health and a local license to operate the same has been issued, in addition to the license issued by the state as defined in N.J.A.C. 3A:52-2.2.
Whenever any day care has been deemed to have serious or imminent hazards to the health, safety, well-being, and development of children, an "unsatisfactory" or "conditionally satisfactory" inspection placard will be issued in addition to a written notice of violation. All identified hazards shall be remediated according to the timeline established by the designee of the Department of Health.
All employees within day-care facilities who prepare food within their facility shall receive a food handler's permit from the Department of Health.
Whenever any day-care facility has been issued a written notice of violation for lack of a food handler's permit, all persons employed therein shall, within 30 days of the date of such notification, apply for a food handler's card and attend the course of instruction provided herein. Day-care facilities who do not prepare food within their facility are exempt from the requirements of this subsection. Failure to obtain the food handler's card may result in the revocation of the license to operate a day-care facility.
All persons holding a food handler's card shall renew such card through the Township of Irvington's Department of Health, on or before June 1 of each calendar year.
Each person applying to attend the general course of instruction provided by the Department of Health shall pay a registration fee as set out in § 324-16 of the Revised Code of the Township of Irvington.
