(A)   Any person desiring to operate a food establishment must make a written application for a permit on forms provided by the regulatory authority. The application must contain the name and address of each applicant, the location and type of the proposed food establishment and the applicable fee as established in the City of Lindsay fee schedule. An incomplete application will not be accepted. Failure to provide all required information, or falsifying information required may result in denial or revocation of the permit. Renewals of permits are required on an annual basis and the same information is required for a renewal permit as for an initial permit.
   (B)   Prior to the approval of an initial permit or the renewal of an existing permit, the regulatory authority shall inspect the proposed food establishment to determine compliance with state laws and rules. A food establishment that does not comply with state laws and rules will be denied a permit or the renewal of a permit.
   (C)   Permits for temporary food establishments that have been inspected and permitted by another regulatory authority in the State of Texas (temporary permits from other regulatory authorities are not allowed) may be provided a temporary permit without an inspection from the regulatory authority.
   (D)   Fees for any application, permit, or inspection required under this chapter shall be required as established in the City of Lindsay fee schedule.
