The Grant County Health District’s Board of Health needs a new representative from the north end of the county.
The representative should be from Grand Coulee, Electric City, Coulee City, or Hartline, can be an elected official or simply a citizen, and will attend meetings on the second Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. in Ephrata.
Electric City Councilmember Carol Nordine formerly filled the position.
“Carol has done a fantastic job for us,” said Theresa Adkinson, administrator for Grant County Health.
The meetings are a chance for representatives to ask questions, raise concerns from the community, and hear health-related information relevant to Grant County.
Board members vote on things like adopting the budget, setting local ordinances, and setting the fee schedule. And they address issues with policies.
Board positions are up for renewal every two years.
Board members are reimbursed for their mileage to and from the meetings.
If residents have an interest in filling this role, they should speak with their city council members. Or for more information, contact Adkinson at 509-766-7960 extension 24.
