San Antonio Restaurants may soon be required to post inspection letter grade placards

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – Restaurants in the city of San Antonio currently are required to post an inspection report within the food establishment premises, but Metro Health is proposing that they be required to display letter grade placards.

The health department awards an “A” for a score of 90 to 100 on the inspection report.  Eighty to 89 is a “B,” and 70 to 79 is a “C.” Officials say the letter grade placard is more intuitive and transparent to the public.  Cities that use letter grade placards include Boston, New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Kerrville, Schertz, Selma and Cibolo.

The San Antonio City Council will get a briefing on the proposal Wednesday.
