Your public health and human services questions can now be answered in the same office in Door County. The two departments officially merged their operations earlier this year with Joe Krebsbach serving as its director. Sue Powers is second in command serving as the department’s public health manager and health officer. Krebsbach says the transition has been smooth since the two departments collaborated with each other frequently in the past.
Merging the public health and human services departments at the county level is nothing new in the state. Twenty-eight counties including Door have merged public health and human services departments.
