Coconino County’s Public Health Services District (CCPHSD) recently launched a new inspection website for the food service and restaurant industry with support from the county’s information technology department.
In recent years, the number of public requests for local inspection information has increased, elevating the need to relay information conveniently, according to a press release. Coconino County’s restaurants and food service facilities are inspected twice yearly, with follow-ups on an as-needed basis.
Consequently, CCPHSD tried to use existing software but found it unfeasible, the release said. The entire system will be upgraded by early 2018, but in the meantime, CCPHSD has created the Food Service and Restaurant Inspection Website to better serve the public.
Providing basic information on food service inspections, the interim website lists reports in a user-friendly interface along with references for code violations, a survey feature and more details on obtaining records. Information is arranged chronologically and is searchable by month, as well as alphabetically or geographically.
CCPHSD plans to include an interactive map feature in the future, as well as provide a mobile application version of the site.
