The DuPage County Health Department has launched a new feature on its website that makes copies of inspection reports available to the public for food, swimming pool, and spa facilities.
Inspection reports have been subject to public disclosure for many years under the Illinois Freedom of Inspection Act (FOIA).
Until now, however, residents wishing to view these reports have had to make FOIA requests to the DuPage County Health Department office, which provides hundreds to thousands of copies of these reports each year.
With this new feature, residents will be able to search and view inspection reports instantly at the click of a button without having to submit a FOIA request.
DuPage County food, pool and spa facility owners and operators will also benefit from this new feature. These facilities representatives wishing to obtain extra copies of their inspection report will also be able to do so online.
