Inspection scores can range from 0 to 100 demerits

0 demerits means no critical violations were seen at the
time of inspection.
15 demerits could be considered an average inspection

Risk Level Determination
The most effective and efficient use of resources is realized when
services are focused on food establishments that serve the City’s
most fragile citizens and food establishments that demonstrate
disregard for the rules designed to protect public health.
Any food establishment that receives a satisfactory score on
their most recent routine inspection and has had no complaint
investigation within the past year resulting in a “Confirmed”
finding shall be considered a Level I or low risk when
determining inspection frequency.
All food establishments serving highly susceptible populations,
such as public and private schools, child care kitchens, medical
facilities, and those facilities serving ready to eat foods in a
less than fully cooked form shall be considered Level II or
medium priority when determining inspection frequency.
All food establishments, in any priority level, receiving a
score of 25 or greater on their last routine inspection or
having a complaint investigation resulting in a “Confirmed”
finding shall be considered a Level III or high risk when
determining inspection frequency. A score of 25 or greater shall
result in an additional scored inspection performed within 30
days of the failing inspection. As many additional scored and/or
un-scored inspections will be conducted as necessary to ensure
compliance and public health. Complaints shall result in the
conducting of an investigation that may or may not include
scored or un-scored inspections.
