The newly merged Door County Department of Health and Human Services will continue to operate under the supervision of two separate boards this year. That cames after the latest meeting of the public health board which looked at the possible merging of the two boards. Department of Health and Human Services Director Joe Krebsbach says any merged board would have to meet specific state statutes and have specific candidates for board membership.
Krebsbach says the board merger proposal will likely be brought up again at a late summer meeting. Any proposal would have to be approved by the Door County Board of Supervisors. Krebsbach says the earliest the health and human services boards could be merged would be next year.
