Rule No. : RULE TITLE :
61C-1.002: Licensing and Inspection Requirements
The The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Division of Hotels and Restaurants hereby gives notice:
that on January 26, 2011 the Department received a Petition for an Emergency Variance for subparagraph 61C-1.002(5)(a)2., Florida Administrative Code, from Carlos Renta located in Miami, FL. The above referenced F.A.C. addresses the requirement that a mobile food dispensing vehicle be a vehicle that is otherwise movable. They are requesting to install casters on the unit rather than axle-mounted wheels in order to be otherwise movable from place to place.
The Order for this Petition was signed on February 17, 2011, and after a complete review of the variance request, the Division finds that the application of this Rule will create a financial hardship to the food service establishment. Furthermore, the Division finds that the Petitioner meets the burden of demonstrating that the underlying statute has been achieved by the Petitioner ensuring the casters are maintained in good repair. No additional equipment is to be installed. The unit must report to the commissary as required.
A copy of the Order or additional information may be obtained by contacting:, Division of Hotels and Restaurants, 1940 North Monroe Street, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-1011.
