Why isn't Legion in restaurant inspections?

In Mail Call for Thursday, June 12, a reader asked why the Boonsboro American Legion was never listed in the Washington County Health Department restaurant inspections that run about once a month in the Sunday Herald-Mail.

An archival search for Clopper-Michael Post 10 of the American Legion Post, 710 N. Main St., Boonsboro, showed that the post was listed in August 2005, August 2006 and January 2007 inspections.

Ryan Seavolt, program supervisor of the food division at the health department, said there are three categories of food service establishments - high, moderate and low priority.

High priority, which includes the Boonsboro Legion, are slated to be inspected three times a year, Seavolt said. The number of staff inspectors can affect that schedule.

Moderate priority sites are to be inspected twice a year while low priority are on an every other year schedule, Seavolt said.
