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 June 26, 2018. 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
