While its overall grade was fairly ordinary, this city performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our best scores.

Places with better grades in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. Inspections appears to be this city's next best attribute. We awarded it a B- in this area.
