The Environmental Health Department recognizes the severe impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on local restaurants, bars and breweries, body art & tattoo, swimming pool and spa, and organized campground facilities. The inability to operate and remaining in compliance with the State of California Public Health Orders for public health and safety during COVID-19 which continue today, prompted the Environmental Health Department to work with the County Executive Office’s office to create a one-time permit fee waiver. The request was approved by the County Board of Supervisors on October 13, 2020.
Through an application process, owners and operators of Nevada County restaurants, bars and breweries, body art and tattoo facilities, swimming pools and spas, as well as organized campground facilities may apply for a waiver of permit fees for the upcoming Fiscal Year, November 1, 2020 through October 31, 2021. The waiver application process opened October 23, 2020 and will close on November 30, 2020. Businesses are encouraged to apply early and complete all areas on the waiver application form.
