Board of Health

Board of Health

The County Board of Health acts as the policy-making body for the health department. This policy-making role includes allocating resources, adopting rules and regulations, and appointing and advising the health director. 

The Board of Health has eleven members whom County Commissioners appoint after consulting the health director. The board must have the following as members: a physician, a dentist, a pharmacist, an optometrist, a registered nurse, a veterinarian, a professional engineer, a County Commissioner, and three representatives from the general public. 

In general, County Board of Health members serve three-year terms. The County Commissioner member serves a term concurrent with his or her term as Commissioner. No Board of Health member may serve more than three consecutive three year terms. When a vacancy on the Board of Health occurs, the person chosen by the commissioners to fill the vacancy serves for the unexpired portion of the departed member’s term.
