For months – years in fact – we’ve been hearing about how Sacramento County does not have any money, has a huge budget deficit, needs to law off non-managers, and so on.
Now the yearly State Fair is upon us.
Animals. Rides. Fried Twinkies. Fun to be had by all.
Sacramento County inspectors will be out in full force. Not to make sure rides are safe. Not to make sure people are having a good time.
But to inspect over 150 food vendors to make sure there are no artificial trans fats in any food they may sell.
The Sacramento county food inspectors will be testing anything cooked in oil, any food that is not baked or pre-made such as hamburger buns, pre-prepared box mixes, and batter.
Just keep this in mind whenever you hear the County squealing about budget problems.
The money is there. It’s just a matter of prioritizing what you want to spend it on.
