The director of the health department, based in Clayton, said her office will consider updating its fee schedule—to a point.
Clayton Farmer's Market manager Deborah Henderson recently sent a letter to a county official telling him that fees imposed on farmers markets by the St. Louis County Department of Health are causing farmers to consider going elsewhere with their goods. That's why Henderson has consulted the health department, the Missouri Department of Agriculture and other local managers in an effort to get the fees reduced or waived. "These permit fees have created undue financial hardships for farmers and other food vendors, and the corresponding permit filings have become burdensome," Henderson stated in an April 22 letter to 5th District County Councilman Pat Dolan. Dolan is a Richmond Heights resident. A copy of the letter is attached to this …
