Board of Health
By law, the Board of Health is the designated public health authority for the town. It is primarily a regulatory agency, and strives to effectively enforce all applicable laws and rules and regulations pertaining to public health in order to preserve and protect public health - its major goal and responsibility. Additionally, the board continually evaluates and identifies community health needs so it can provide appropriate programs and services that lend to the promotion of public health for all.
The Board of Health meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 4:30 p.m. in the Selectboard Meeting Room in town hall at 116 Main Street. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, the Board meets virtually.
