Environmental Health

****NOTICE****

The Colorado legislature recently passed Senate Bill 20B-001. Part of this bill provides funding to support certain retail food establishments (defined as “brick and mortar establishments licensed in the category 0-100 seats, 101-200 seats, and over 200 seats, or commonly referred to as “restaurants” and any limited facility that would be characterized with a business model primarily as a “bar”), impacted in 2020 by capacity restrictions imposed to address the COVID-19 pandemic. If you operated as a restaurant and/or bar in 2020, funding from this bill provides payment of your 2021 license fees.

For restaurants and/or bars, if you have already paid for your 2021 license fee, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) will provide a refund of your 2021 license fee sometime in the first quarter of 2021. If you are a restaurant and/or bar, and have not yet paid your 2021 license fees, DO NOT MAKE A PAYMENT; Tri-County Health Department will receive a payment from CDPHE on your behalf.

If your establishment does not qualify per the above State-assigned designations, 2021 license fees are due by 12/31/2020.

If you have questions, please call the Tri-County Health Department invoicing hotline at 720-358-8355.
