The Seneca County Board of Health discussed a permit fee change for any outdoor event held with a large number of people during a meeting Thursday evening.
Laura Wallrabenstein, director of the Environmental Division, proposed a $226 flat permit fee for large gatherings or concerts, such as Smokin' Country Concert in Bloomville.
The cost analysis of the fee involves site investigation, clerical support and consultation with other regional or state professionals, government officials or business professionals.
The current fee structure is $350 per 1,000-4,999 attendees, $450 per 5,000-9,999 attendees and $500 per 10,000 or more attendees.
"We would look at it every year, if it's approved," Wallrabenstein said.
The change could go to a vote next month.
In another matter, John Walker, director of projects for Sunny Farms Landfill in Fostoria, spoke about ridding current gas from the site and expanding future operations.
"We hope to have the landfill gas system hooked up by next week, to burn off additional gas," Walker said.
The board listened to Walker's plans at the landfill.
"I would like to expand the existing footprint from the current 120 acres by adding an additional 165 acres," he said.
No action was taken to expand the permitted land use, as Walker mentioned it may be a five-year process.
