County may expand health board
December 12th, 2003
(Port Angeles) – Clallam County may expand its board of health. Currently
the three county commissioners serve as the board of health. But a
proposal the commissioners may take up as soon as next month could
expand who serves on the board. County commissioner Mike Chapman says
the board could have as many as seven members if the proposal is approved.
Added could be members of the medical profession as well as representatives
from the cities or tribes. Chapman says he thinks brining in more
voices on the board is a good idea. Commission chair Steve Tharinger
says he also is behind the proposed change. The county would still
keep its public health advisory board. The board of health gets briefed
regularly from the county’s health officer and takes action on issues
that concern public health policies in the county.
