From Sup. Kuehl's Office: DPH-EH Proposed Health Permit/ License Fee Increases
May 23, 2018
Dear Business Partners:
The Department of Public Health, Environmental Health Division (DPH-EH) is providing this notification to ensure that businesses subject to public health permits/licenses are aware of the upcoming proposed changes in fees. While this information was sent directly to businesses, we would appreciate you sharing within your networks.
The DPH-EH is recommending a fifteen percent (15%) increase to the current public health permit/license fees effective fiscal year 2018-2019. The last adjustment made to public health permit/license fees was in 2011 and as such the current fees are insufficient to recover the cost of the services being provided by the DPH-EH.
The recommendation to increase public health permit/license fees will be considered by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on . If the proposed fee increase is approved by the Board, the adjustment in permit/license fees will range between $5 to $394. A supplemental billing statement will be mailed to permit/license holders for the portion representing the 15% increase.
Attached is the general information packet that the Department of Public Health-Environmental Health has published regarding the proposed public health permit/license fee increase. If you need additional information of wish to provide comments, please contact DPH-EH at (626) 430-5457 or by email email@example.com.
