Bureaucracy Now

The cost of running a restaurant, farmers market or food truck in unincorporated parts of Harris County just went up. Harris County Commissioners Court voted unanimously (earlier in October) to raise fees to make up for costs the health department incurs implementing the permitting program. Fees, depending on the type of permits, will go up by a maximum of $60. Ironically, the department is still predicted to fall $115,000 short of the costs it takes to administer permits. []
