    The City of McKinney Health Compliance Division will publish full health inspection reports for restaurants on the city’s website beginning June 1.

    They city said in a news release Friday that the restaurants will be easily searchable on an interactive map.

    "The main goal of the change is to place consumers in a position to make better informed decisions regarding their dining choices and to support McKinney’s continued efforts for transparency by providing easy access to public information," the city said in a news release.

    Before the update the city published a numerical score for restaurants. Now, they'll make available the restaurant's full report.

    "McKinney Health Compliance does not score inspection results on a standard zero to 100 scale but instead tabulates total demerits. If no violations are found, a score of zero demerits is achieved. Violations during inspections carry different weighted demerits, with the most critical violations being worth three demerits. If an establishment receives more than 30 demerits, a re-inspection is required and corrections must be made to bring the total score below 30 demerits in accordance with the Texas Food Establishment Rules (Chapter 228 of the Texas Administrative Code)," the city said.

    The city added that later this year inspectors will use iPads in the field to streamline the process.
