Food Fees Are Changing!

Beginning January 1st, 2019, food and hotel license fees will increase. This was a decision that was made by Iowa Legislature, and the last time there was a change in the food fees was 10 years ago. We have put together a fact sheet that shows the changes in the fees as well as some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for specific licenses.
