MOUNT VERNON — A first reading was given to a list of proposed environmental health fees through the Knox County Health Department on Wednesday. With the public hearing taking place prior to the regular monthly meeting of the Knox County Board of Health, no visitors turned out to voice their opinion or ask questions about the proposed fees.
Reporting in the absence of Environmental Health Director Nate Overholt was Knox County Health Commissioner Julie Miller, who explained that the current list of department fees is deemed to be low, based on a standardized cost methodology formula prescribed by the state of Ohio which looks at food costs.
