It was another busy week for health inspectors in Midland and Odessa. There were several top performers for the week of July 31st through August 4th. However, two restaurants in Midland made our low performer list.

Taco Time at 9909 E. Hwy. 80 in Midland was cited for the following:

- Cross contamination of foods
- No hot water
- Cooler not working
- Evidence of insects

- No dates/labels on watermelons/onions
- Uncovered buckets of ice in cooler
