Temporary Health Permit

Temporary Health Permits are required to be obtained by food vendors at all events open to the public in which food is conveyed and which operate at a fixed location or event for a temporary period of time.  

Obtaining a Temporary Health Permit

To obtain a Temporary Health Permit simply submit a Temporary Health Permit application along with $75.00 at least 3 days prior to the event to the City of Mesquite Health Division. Once received we will review your application and may request additional information if needed. Once the permit has been issued we ask that you display this permit where it is visible to the public on the day of the event.
