Permit Renewal Fees

Please note below that Schools and Non-Profits have separate permit categories. Food Service Establishment permit categories are determined by menu risk and are evaluated annually by the Health Department.

The annual deadline for food permit renewal is May 30th, after which a 50% late fee will incur. Online Food Permit Applications are accepted annually from April 1st through June 30th. Once the online application and fee are received a new permit will be issued. Permits are valid from July 1st through June 30th of the following calendar year. Failure to renew a permit and pay the total fee before the expiration date, will result in an expired permit and a demand for cessation of your food establishment operation by the Clinton County Health Department.
