SD Health Dept. Revamping Restaurant Inspections
November 20, 2011, 10:49 AM
RAPID CITY, SD -
South Dakota's restaurant inspection program is being revamped.
The state's health inspection program will soon be digitized thanks to a $150,000 federal grant. This will allow inspectors to score restaurants electronically and give patrons easier access to the inspections.
Currently, the state Department of Health uses a paper-based system to track health inspections, and inspections are not made public unless someone requests them.
Restaurant owners will also be able to renew their licenses online with the new program.
Clark Hepper with the Office of Health Protection said the electronic system will provide more information to the public and increase efficiency for health department staff.
The system is expected to be running by Dec. 31.
