Board of Health Meeting this Monday

This upcoming Monday, January 31, at 6:00 pm., The Board of Health will be holding a meeting at the American Red Cross Building (Room 103) located on 2200 Avenue A in Bethlehem. At this meeting, The Board of Health will discuss available funding and staff to support its work, and confirm the next steps for 2011.

Despite the January 10th vote from the Health Commission against approving a planning budget for the Board of Health, the Board still remains committed to continuing its work to create a services and business plan for the regional health department.
