Meeting permit requirements will no longer require a trip to the department’s office when Public Health completes online updates
VANCOUVER — Residents of Clark County looking to submit permit applications, renewals or payments to Clark County Public Health will soon have a new online option.
According to a press release, Clark County Public Health is unveiling new features on its website to allow users to meet permit requirements without having to travel to the department’s office.
Users of the new system, once complete, will be able to submit applications, receive status updates, make payments, upload required documents and review account activity.
“Public Health will add online capabilities for a variety of services throughout the rest of the year,” according to the press release. “Beginning today, people seeking permits for temporary food establishments can submit applications online. Public Health issues about 180 single- and multi-event temporary permits each year.”
Later this summer, food establishment and mobile unit operators will be able to submit information for their annual plan reviews and permits on the website, according to the press release. A portal for making vital records requests also will be available online in the coming months.
The Public Health website will later this year have capabilities for submitting on-site sewage treatment system design and installation applications, septic release and water adequacy reviews and individual well and small drinking-water system applications.
The review and permit processes for water recreation facility plans also will be available online, and website users will be able to make payments for existing annual permits.
In addition to providing permit processes online, Public Health will update its website features for submitting Public Health complaints and reviewing restaurant inspection scores.
