DEH Health Permit Fees
The Board of Supervisors approved the Department of Environmental Health’s (DEH) cost recovery adjustment proposal in April 2018. The approved fees, effective July 1, 2018, are provided on the list of current fees.
San Diego County Board of Supervisors policy B-29 requires DEH to be full cost recovery. During the year, the department has continued to focus on offsetting rising costs by gaining operational efficiencies and by leveraging technology to streamline work. However, DEH needs to increase fees for FY 2019-20, and took a cost recovery proposal forward for Board consideration on April 10, 2019. The Board will make a final decision on the cost recovery propsal on May 1, 2019, which if approved, would take effect July 1, 2019. A list of proposed fees is available here.
