Maine Restaurant Inspections

The Maine Sunday Telegram reports that the state will soon be making state restaurant inspection reports available online.

The move to open access to inspection reports comes as a Yarmouth lawmaker is pushing to expand the team of state health inspectors so they can get to each restaurant more frequently to check kitchens and look for improperly stored foods. A legislative committee is scheduled to hold a public hearing Monday morning on the bill.

Restaurant inspection reports for Portland are already available on the city’s website.
