Humble City Council approved implementing new software March 7 that will provide online monitoring for a number of restaurant regulations from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

Council members approved partnering with Vepo, LLC to move monitoring of several TCEQ requirements for restaurants within the city to an online platform. The new system will allow the Humble Public Works Department to remotely monitor:
  • Backflow prevention assembly testing
  • Maintenance reports
  • Grease trap tickets
  • Inspection reports
City Manager Jason Stuebe said the platform will be completely free to use for the city.

Quote of note

“It's a very manual and tedious process for ... folks in public works," Stuebe said. "So this is an outfit that actually streamlines that; they monitor it through the tickets that are required to be called to the TCEQ. It'll help automate that process, and that way they can focus on some other things.”
