New System Weighed for Grading Restaurants

May 11, 1999

SANTA ANA — Orange County supervisors are expected to push ahead today with plans for a more accessible restaurant grading system.

The county Board of Supervisors is scheduled to review grading systems from surrounding counties and ask the county's Health Care Agency to work out details over the next three months.

The agency, which enforces safety codes at about 11,000 restaurants throughout the county, doesn't have enough employees now to carry out the county's mandate of inspecting every food establishment four times a year.

Jack Miller, the county's director of environmental health, declined to comment on the impact that the board's plans for accessible ratings might have on his department.
