The Douglas County Health Department would like to recognize the following food establishments with a “Silver Spoon Award” for a perfect inspection or a “Clean Spoon Award” for an inspection score of 95 or higher earned during the month of December, 2018; Inspections are spread over an entire year, and only the winners of December, 2018 are listed.
In 2019 the Douglas County Health Department will begin using the Illinois Department of Public Health approved 2017 Food Code. The code does not use a scored inspection and the Clean and Silver Spoon awards will be determined under this new method. In 2019 the Clean Spoon will go to all establishments found to be in satisfactory compliance with minimum local ordinance standards met, and the Silver Soon Award will go to establishments with no violations. Each establishment will be required to post an inspection placard.
