Four of our Board of Public Health members have submitted resignations. Mesa County Public Health (MCPH) is grateful for their guidance and support during their terms.
“These wonderful professionals served the community well. We wish them gratitude and best wishes as they move forward,” said Executive Director Jeff Kuhr.
New Board of Public Health members will be discussed and appointed during a public meeting this afternoon at 3 p.m. Information about the meeting is posted on the Board of County Commissioners meeting page. These new, interim board members will serve while the county goes through the standard process of accepting applications from the public for board members. We anticipate this process could take 2 to 3 months. Per the Board of Public Health bylaws, board members should include, as often as possible, representatives from partnering agencies or representatives with a public-health-related background.
“We are working to ensure a smooth transition that does not impact Public Health services or the great work the agency does,” said Mesa County Commissioner Janet Rowland.
Kuhr added, “We are committed to working together with the new board to continue the mission of Mesa County Public Health.”
Operations continue as normal at Mesa County Public Health. Once the new Board of Public Health is selected, we will post information about them on our website.
