Color coded signs could display restaurant health scores


Champaign -  A Champaign County Board Committee will vote on restaurants displaying their health inspection scores.


The new law would require restaurants to display their score on color coded placards. If approved the whole County Board will vote on the rule next week.


The sign would let customers know how clean and safe the place they are eating at is. A Champaign County Public Health official suggests posting a green, yellow or red notice on the front door, which would indicate the results of the restaurant's most recent health inspection.


The proposal has already been approved by the County Board of Health. If passed by the whole board, it would go into affect January 1st.
