continued After being informed of the event, Monforte contacted Snyder to get more information, and also asked Snyder to contact the Cazenovia Republican, which otherwise could not get in touch with him on a Sunday.
When asked if any community organization who wants to hold a pot-luck dinner or bake sale should be concerned about violating county health codes, Snyder said not necessarily. He said the department often issues letters of permission for such events, and works hard to contact all groups to give them the appropriate information about serving food to the public.
“We always want to encourage organizations to contact us before events like these; we have information we can provide to help them follow all the necessary procedures,” Snyder said.
