Meeting Minutes
Board of Health
March 13, 2008

The regular monthly meeting of the Lansdowne Board of Health was held on Tuesday, March 13, 2008 at 7:00 pm. at Borough Hall. Present were Betsy Riffert, Bertha Phillips and Dr. Romney. Absent were Council liaison Sharon Coleman, Mike McCall and Al Them.


The minutes from the March meeting were read and approved as submitted. Since Mr. Them knew that he was going to be absent from this March meeting, he gave his approval of the March minutes verbally to Ms. Riffert.


The Health Officer’s March invoice ($360) was presented for payment and approved as submitted. Due to the fact that there was no meeting scheduled in April, the Officer’s April invoice was pre-approved for payment at this March meeting, and will be presented for review during the June meeting.

Health Officer’s Report:

The Health Officer’s reports for March and April were presented, discussed and accepted as submitted.

Old Business:

1. PA Department of Health Annual Report: s. Coleman was present as our council liaison as well as chair of the Public Safety Committee. Ms. Coleman wanted clarification on some language, prior to her Public Safety Committee this evening. She stated she wanted the definition of “operator”. The Board stated that “operator” was the event sponsor, who was ultimately responsible for compliance. Ms. Coleman stated that she will report back to the Public Safety Committee, and this ordinance will go before Council at their 3/19/08 meeting, so it can be advertised for ordination at their 4/2/08 meeting.

New Business:

1. PA Department of Health Annual Report: Ms. Riffert stated that this annual report arrived, she will complete and mail. Copies will be distributed at the next scheduled meeting of the Board.
2. Licensing of Establishments: Renewals were late this year, but Ms. Riffert reported that the businesses are mailing in their renewal paperwork/fees and all is well.


7:30pm. Next meeting to be held on June 10, 2008 at 7:00 pm

Respectfully submitted,
Betsy Riffert
