New York City restaurants are going to be paying less for not making the grade.
City council speaker Christine Quinn announced a plan that will cut fines from 15 to 50 percent for minor health violations. Other fines will be reduced to $200.
She wants the rating system to serve a purpose and not to hurt businesses.
The changes will reduce fines by 10 million dollars a year.
They’re expected to go into effect at the end of this year.
