Update to Environmental Health Related Fees
The Environmental Health Department Food Service Fees were updated on August 9, 2022. Prior, the fees had not been updated since 2006. This new structure is simplified, more up-to-date, and based on risk associated with activities and populations served. This new model allows for faster fee determination and transparency at the plan submittal and review stage. The tiered model also eliminates the unnecessary complexity of food service establishments falling into multiple categories and having to pay multiple fees.
