Letter: Operators, not taxpayers, fund restaurant inspections

Operators pay for health inspectors

EDITOR: In a Feb. 27 story Daily Herald Media story headlined "Federal cuts loom locally," Joan Theurer, health officer for the Marathon County Health Department, was paraphrased as saying that restaurant inspections are funded by the county. That is not the case. The health department's inspections/licensing department collects nearly all its direct costs from the sale of yearly licenses. Operators pay, not the taxpayers. The Health Department, then, is almost totally dependent on the sale of licenses to fund its inspectors.
