Board of Health
January 11, 2011
The regular monthly meeting of the Lansdowne Board of Health was held on Tuesday, January 11, 2011 at 7:00 pm. in Borough Hall. Present were Betsy Riffert, Dr. McLaughlin, President McCall. Absent were Dr. Romney, Bertha Phillips, and Council Liaison Schleigh.
There were no official minutes in November as a quorum was not held, and no minutes for December as that is not a month in which we meet. Minutes were presented for the October meeting, which Ms. Phillips and myself reviewed in November and Dr. McLaughlin created the needed quourn in January, therefore approving without any issues.
The Health Officer’s October, November and December invoices were reviewed. As policy, the Officer’s invoices are presented for payment when they arrive with the Board giving their final approval when compared with her reports. These three invoices were approved with out comment.
Health Officer’s Report
The Health Officer’s October, November and December reports were approved as submitted..
- Public Health Initiative: Dr. McLaughlin is in the continual process of gathering and sorting through information. We feel that once the Library Director is hired, we can move in a productive manner with “in-service” meetings for the Library staff, and getting general information out to other locations where those in need tend to gather.
- House Bill 174 was presented for distribution, review and further discussion
7:30pm. Next meeting February 8, 2011
Betsy Riffert, Secretary
