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.
