Proposed Environmental HEALTH Fee Adjustments

The Kitsap Public Health District is seeking public comment on proposed Environmental Health fee adjustments.

Kitsap Public Health Board Budget Policy directs the Kitsap Public Health District to recover the cost of service for fee-related services. Based on a recent review and evaluation of Environmental Health service fees, the current hourly rate used to calculate each fee is no longer sufficient to recover the cost of service. The base hourly rate has not been adjusted since 2009. An increase in the base hourly rate is needed to recover the full cost of services.

The Health District has utilized grant funding to supplement programs for nearly a decade, and the majority of the District's Environmental Health service fees have not been increased since 2009. This grant funding is no longer available, requiring the Health District to increase local fees to cover the cost of Environmental Health services.

Feedback on the proposed fee schedule will be accepted until Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2017 at 4:30 p.m. and can be submitted:

  1. Online

  2. Via phone by calling (360) 728-2205

  3. Via mail:
