The Lewis County Community Development Department has updated its website. The changes, recommended through the recent Permit Process Improvement Initiative, simplify the look and feel of the site and better showcase the available online content.
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the LEWIS COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS (BOCC) passed the following Ordinance during a public hearing on January 23, 2017: Ordinance 1271 regulating marijuana activity and lifting a moratorium thereon, repealing chapter 8.60 and amending chapters 5.20, 8.15, 8.40, 8.45, 8.55, and 15.05, and Title 17 of Lewis County Code and amending the Lewis County Annual Fee Schedule.
Credit Cards Now Accepted in the Lewis County Permit Center
Lewis County prides itself on keeping the customer's needs in sight. Requests to facilitate payment for permitting services with a credit card is now a reality! This recent change in process is another component of the Lewis County Process Improvement Initiative.
Begining December 5, 2016, Lewis County Permit Center, which includes Community Development, Environmental Services and Public Works, officially launched Point & Pay. To our customers, this means we will accept all major credit cards for services, including permit fees, at the permit center. At this time we are not accepting e-checks or online. The vendor providing this service is Point & Pay. The vendor does charge a convenience fee. The convenience fee is 2.5% of the cost of your permit.
During our soft launch, customers Keith Gainer and Christy Anderson, owner of the Mason Jar in Onalaska, graciously worked with us to test the system. With a little patience, they were our first customers to pay for their permits using a credit card. Thank you Keith and Christy!
As always, please let us know of services or efficiencies you would like to see when visiting the Permit Center - we love hearing from you!
For further information, please contact one of our Permit Technicians at 360.740.1146.
Shop'n Kart store management chose to discard many cakes and cupcakes last week due to an employee receiving a positive test for Hepatitis A. After further testing, it has been determined that the original test was a false positive. Even though it was a false postive, Shop'n Kart's management went above and beyond working with the Health Department to ensure their employees and customers were protected. Please share widely that their bakery items are safe to eat! (Cake items purchased with personal dollars, no government funding.)
At the direction of the Lewis County Board of County Commissioners, county staff and customers completed a Process Improvement Initiative to identify changes to improve the residential permitting process. Please read the entire press release here.
