SEATTLE -– The Seattle-King County Board of Health may end a subsidy for food licenses for kitchens at schools and nonprofit groups.
The Seattle Times reports the fee would double to about $350 a year if they had to pay what restaurants pay. The increase would cost the Seattle School District about $10,000 more for kitchen permits.
The fees pay for inspections and food safety education.
The board may vote at its July 16 meeting on the proposal to bring in more money for the department.
