The Washington County Board of Commissioners agreed Dec. 1 to waive late fees on 2021 health licenses for local businesses in the county.

The response to the COVID-19 pandemic has included the governor’s Executive Orders to protect public health, which has had an unprecedented and unexpected impact to the business activity of licensed food service establishments, lodging establishments, public pools, recreational camping areas and youth camps.

The county will waive late fees for 2021 health licenses to recognize the impact of the pandemic on these businesses and provide financial relief. Late fees remitted during the 2020 license process totaled about $15,500.
