A Message from the
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
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.
Richard D. Setty, R.S.
