Board of Health
The Ohio Revise Code outlines some specific functions that the Board must carry out. These functions generally deal with the Health, Welfare and Safety of the residents of the County. The Board can establish various divisions to carry out these functions and, with the recommendation of the Health Commissioner, also has the authority to hire personnel to handle the day-to-day operations of the Health Department.
The Board of Health meets on the third Monday of each month at 6 pm. The meetings are held at the Health Department at 619 W. Marion Road, Mt. Gilead, Ohio: Visitors are welcome at any meeting. However, if you wish to address the Board, please contact the Health Commissioner at (419) 947-1545 x308 for an appointment time no later than 72 hours prior to the meeting (per Board of Health policy).
The term of a board member is 5 years. Each year in March, at the annual DAC* meeting, members are appointed. By law, the Board of Health must have a physician as a member and at least one representative from a licensing program of the district. Present members of the Board of Health are:
