Title
Joint resolution amending the Lake County Health Department Environmental Health Fees Schedule (as authorized in Lake County Code of Ordinances Chapter 178).

Staff Summary
* The proposed revisions to the Environmental Health Fees Schedule would require licensed public swimming beaches to pay the same annual license fee as other seasonal swimming facilities (pools) pay.
* These public swimming beaches have been licensed by the Health Department since 2013 but have not been assessed an annual fee because the Department was receiving a federal grant that funded inspections and samples at beaches.
* Those federal funds have significantly diminished and no longer fund these mandated activities; therefore, the proposal is being made to require that the licensed beaches pay these costs.
