The Environmental Health Division of the Victoria County Department of Public Health inspects places where food is served in Victoria, DeWitt, Jackson and Calhoun counties.
In the inspection reports, each infraction in priority elements 1 to 20 corresponds to 3 demerits; Priority Foundation items 21-33 are 2 demerits; and the base elements are 1 demerit. Zero is a perfect score, while 100 demerits is the worst possible score.
Every Wednesday, the lawyer publishes the inspection results of the previous week. All demerits are reported, but only priority and essential items are detailed.
