NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that four Public Workshops have been scheduled to take testimony on the potential Impact upon Business of the proposed Environmental Health (EH) Fee Schedule changes. Testimony from the workshops and written comments will be used to complete the Business Impact Statement (BIS) pursuant to Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) 237.080. A Public Hearing to review and take testimony on the BIS for the proposed EH Fee Schedule changes will be held before the Southern Nevada District Board of Health (BOH) on Thursday, September 26, 2019, at 8:30 a.m. in the Red Rock Conference Room at the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) Public Health Center located at 280 South Decatur Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada, pursuant to NRS 239.090. A Public Hearing to review and approve the proposed EH Fee Schedule changes will be held before the BOH on Thursday, October 24, 2019, at 8:30 a.m. in the Red Rock Conference Room at the SNHD Public Health Center located at 280 South Decatur Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada.
Per Board of Health direction, the EH Division is proposing several targeted and specific changes to the current EH Fee Schedule, including but not limited to, increasing the hourly rate, imposing new fees for B Downgrades and increasing fees for C Downgrades and Closures for the Food Operations Program. These adjustments will help offset increased operating expenses.
Copies of the proposed EH Fee Schedule Changes will be available for review in the EH Division, 280 South Decatur Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Copies can be requested at that time for a charge of one dollar per page. The same may be viewed on the SNHD website, www.snhd.info/news-info/public-notices/. Copies of the BIS will be available for review as stated above no later than September 12, 2019.
Business owners and interested parties may submit data, views, and comments as to whether the proposed changes will impose a direct and/or significant economic burden upon a business or directly restrict the formation, operation, or expansion of a business. A summary of all workshop testimony and comments submitted by August 30, 2019, to Heather Hanoff, EH Secretary, Southern Nevada Health District, P.O. Box 3902, Las Vegas, Nevada 89127, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org will be included in the BIS presented to the BOH. All interested persons may appear at the BOH PUBLIC HEARINGS and submit data, views, or arguments regarding the BIS and proposed EH Fee Schedule Changes.
