Board raises fees in Pima CountyPosted: Updated:
TUCSON -- Higher fees for child immunizations, dog licenses, AIDS testing and family planning are coming to Pima County.
The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to raise an additional $1.1 million for the Pima County Health Department.
At the same time, the board decided not to raise permit fees for restaurants.
A restaurant industry representative told the board the businesses did not have adequate notice of the changes.
County officials said the fee increases are intended to help the health department offset a nearly $2 million budget decrease.
