If your restaurant has outdoor dining/seating for your customers, do you allow them to have their dogs in that outdoor area?
In accordance with the Florida Statutes, Chapter 509.233 authorizes the City, (pursuant to Chapter 5, Article III, of the City of Jacksonville Beach Code of Ordinances), to issue a permit to public food service establishments that provides an exemption from Section 6-501.115 of the Food and Drug Administration Food Code, in order to allow dogs in the outdoor dining areas of foodservice establishments.
To apply for this exemption, complete the application form, Sections 1, 2, and 3 and submit to the City Clerk's Office with the following documentation:
Copy of your DBPR Restaurant License/Food Service Permit
An accurate sketch (to scale) of the outdoor area designated to patrons with dogs
