Some Health Departments are Food Safety and Recreational Licensing agents for the state of Wisconsin, meaning they inspect, license, and monitor establishments within their jurisdiction on behalf of the state. The South Milwaukee Health Department is an agent for the Wisconsin Food Safety and Recreational Licensing Program. Inspection reports are now available online for public review. Keep in mind that not all restaurants may be inspected by an agent of the state or use the software that allows this online reporting.
