Door County is considering the possibility of creating one board to develop policies for the newly created Door County Department of Health and Human Services. Prior to January 1st, public health and human services were administered as separate departments. However, public health and human service policies are still overseen by two separate boards. When the Board of Public Health meets May 8th, it will take up a proposed merger of the two boards. Health and Human Services Director Joe Krebsbach says any merger must address all functions legally required of the two boards.
The Door County Board of Public Health will meet May 8th at 8:30 AM at the Door County Government Center on Nebraska Street in Sturgeon Bay.
