Bell County Restaurants Receive Grade Based On Health Inspection Score

Health officials in one Eastern Kentucky county are making it easier for you to know what a restaurant's health score is.

Cumberland Valley health officials are trying out a new pilot program where they require all places that serve food to post their inspection score in the form of a grade. For now, a restaurant has to keep its grade for at least six months even if it improves in follow up inspections.

"Right now I have an 89, but I've got a "C". That's the part I'm disappointed in," said Steve Mars.

"Maybe it will keep them honest, it's great," said Nicole Saylor.

Health officials say they may make changes to improve the grading system and then they'd like to expand it to other Eastern Kentucky counties. You can always get the inspection score of a local restaurant by contacting the local health department.
