A Message from the Health Commissioner

 

 

To the Citizens of Salem, Salem City Council and the Director of the Ohio Department of health:

 

          This year we were able to bolster capacity through the hiring of a new Director of Environmental Health, who also serves as our field sanitarian. Hence, we are already seeing an improvement in continuity of services.

          We also continue to expand our collaboration and cooperation with a wide range of community stakeholders, principally through the mechanism of the two community health assessments we have participated in. In addition, we have signed on to a Mutual Aid Agreement that includes most of the local health departments in Northeast Central Ohio. This agreement enables sharing of resources on a completely voluntary basis, especially in the context of emergency situations.

          Upon completion of our first cost methodology, we were able to reduce the licensure fees paid by our Food Service and Food Establishment operators. While this presented a budgetary issue for us, our operators were able to realize some welcome relief during these difficult economic times.

 

Respectfully,

 

Richard D. Setty, R.S.

Health Commissioner
