    The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors agreed to move forward with developing a restaurant placarding system on Tuesday, supporting the findings of a grand jury report earlier this year. Jenna Susko reports.

    The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors agreed to move forward with developing a restaurant placarding system on Tuesday, supporting the findings of a grand jury report earlier this year.

    The report recommended the county implement a system that would require restaurants to post easy-to-read scoring placards in the window and assess fines if they fail to do so. It also found inaccurate and incomplete inspection information on the county website.

    The report cited an NBC Bay Area Investigation last year which exposed Peninsula and San Francisco restaurants skirting laws requiring that they display up their lengthy inspection report.

    The new placarding system would summarize that information in the form of a score or color and require that be posted in plain view.

    The county tells NBC Bay Area that more details will be available on the new system in the coming weeks.
