The Health and Human Services Board provides policy oversight to the Human Services and Public Health departments. The nine member Board is comprised of five County Board Supervisors and four citizen members who are not Supervisors or employees of the County and have a demonstrated interest or competence in Human Services, Public Health or community health. The Board meets monthly. Members are appointed for a three-year term.
PLEASE NOTE: The Chippewa County Code of Ordinances has been completely reviewed, amended and adopted in order to codify Resolution 39-11. That resolution adopted proposals to restructure the Chippewa County Committees, Boards and Commissions to accommodate the downsizing of the Chippewa County Board of Supervisors from 29 to 15 supervisors in April 2012.
The former Board of Health and the Human Services Board were consolidated. The respective duties and responsibilities of the previous boards have now been incorporated into the Health and Human Services Board. Those duties and responsibilities are as follows:
Board of Health
The former Board of Health sets policy for the health department in matters involving surveillance, investigation, control and prevention of communicable diseases, other disease prevention, health promotion and human health hazard control.
