California: Los Angeles County Vending Permit Fee to Be Reduced

For the last two years, the California Automatic Vending Councils has been working with the Los Angeles County Environmental Health Department on issues related to Health Permits for vending machines in the County of Los Angeles. The county had originally proposed an increase in the annual fee from $62.00 to $275.00 per machine based on the county's estimation of the time it would need to invest in inspecting the machines. These fees apply to cold food machines and coffee vending machines. Members of NAMA and CAVC have worked with the county over the last two years to develop a plan for inspecting machines and the establishment of an annual health permit fee. The County of Los Angeles recently announced that LAC code Section 8.04.720 has been amended and the annual fees will now be $62.00 per machine for the first 3 machines and $23.00 for each additional machine that a company has in the field. This is a huge victory for NAMA and CAVC; instead of the fee increasing over 400 percent it will know be reduced significantly. In addition the group is now working together on guidelines for micro markets in Los Angeles County. Thanks go out to the many members who have devoted their time and energy to this effort. more
