Food Service Fees

Two changes have been made affecting Annual Food Service Establishment Permits effective 12/1/2015.

The previous five risk categories of permit fees have been collapsed into three categories of annual food permits to be consistent with State of Illinois system. The three new Risk Categories are I, II or III.

The order of the risk type numbering system for annual food service has been reversed to be consistent with the State of Illinois. For example, a restaurant that was previously categorized by DuPage County as a Risk type 3, 4 or 5 may now be a Risk Category I under the State of Illinois definitions, based on complexity of operations or susceptible population served.
