Forging ahead methodically through the city's zip codes here on Health Department Round-Up, we bogged down in a swamp of violations in the 77020s last week. This week the sailing was much clearer, so we picked up where we left off at 77024 and coasted all the way to 77035.

At High Rise Deli, 9821 Katy Freeway in 77024, inspectors found there was no properly designed and installed heating and cooling system in a February 24 inspection. Given that it's a repeat violation, we've really got to wonder how many employees they lose each August.

A February 19 inspection at Los Tacotes, 11211 Almeda-Genoa Road in 77034, resulted in the temporary closure of the eatery for the manager on duty not having a food-service manager's certificate with him. The eatery's hot water also failed to hit 110 degrees Fahrenheit, and the plumbing that provided it was not sized, installed or maintained properly. Last, Los Tacotes did not provide garbage facilities on the exterior of the unit for customers' use.

At Tacqueria Llenito, 1063 Edgebrook Drive in 77034, a February 18 change-of-ownership inspection found holes and gaps along the walls were not protected against insect entry. Here, too, the plumbing was not sized, installed or maintained properly.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
