Updating the Minnesota Food Code
The current State Food Code, enforced by the Minneapolis Health Department, was written 20 years ago. Many of the practices were not envisioned at that time making this out of date code difficult today for business owners.
Stay up to date on the state’s progress. Visit the MN Food Code Rule Revision webpage here to view the existing and proposed language, make a comment, or sign up for email updates.
We will keep you updated as things progress

We have just been made aware of an upcoming traffic disruption that we wanted to let you know about right away. Centerpoint will be doing some natural gas main work beginning October 16 and going through the end of November on Bryant Ave. So. between 43rd & 46th street.
We have requested that blue “businesses open during construction” signs be placed in the area and will be in close communication with both CenterPoint and the council member’s office on this issue as it moves forward.
More information and updates can be found on the construction project website.
From CenterPoint Energy:
“I wanted to inform you of high profile construction project CenterPoint Energy will be starting later this month in Minneapolis. We will be replacing roughly 1/3 of a mile of natural gas distribution pipe along Bryant Avenue S., from 43rd Street W. to 46th Street W.Construction is expected to begin the week ofOctober 16th and be completed by late November to early December. Please anticipate traffic delays and potential lane closures in the areas of construction.
Last month, we mailed out customer letters to homeowners and businesses in the affected areas. Prior to construction, CenterPoint Energy will have signs directing the public to our construction zone website in the areas of construction.
I have attached the CenterPoint Energy Letter and Map to Residents and Businesses of the construction zone area. It would be great if you could spread this information to whom you see fit. If you are interested in receiving periodic updates regarding our progress, you can click here.
Please feel free to contact me with any further questions.
