NEW Public Health Permit and License Billing System

Taking care of your Public Health Permit or License just got easier!

On May 13, 2014, the County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors adopted the transfer of responsibility for the billing, collection, and issuance of Public Health Permits and Licenses from the Treasurer and Tax Collector (TTC) to the Department of Public Health Environmental Health Division (EH). Billing statements and Public Health Permits and Licenses issued after July 1, 2014 will feature a new appearance in line with the new billing system. Invoices will be based on the facility or the establishment's specific location. One location that has multiple Public Health Permits or Licenses under the same ownership will receive all invoices into one combined statement.

Payment Options

In Person
Customers may make payments in person at any of Environmental Health's office locations throughout Los Angeles County or by mail. Acceptable forms of payment in-person include Cash, Check, Cashier's Check, or Money Order.

Cash payments may only be in person, and in the exact amount due. Please note that we are not yet equipped to provide change for cash payments, except for the Cashier's Office at Environmental Health Headquarters in Baldwin Park. We apologize for this inconvenience.
