Department Retitle and Organizational Changes
On December 9, 2020 (6), the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a proposal to retitle the Department of Environmental Health to the Department of Environmental Health and Quality and implement organizational changes.
The changes will organize internal functions to better distinguish and synergize specific environmental health programs known as Health Officer Programs and make no changes to the department’s budget or day-to-day operations. The changes take effect on January 15, 2021 and are the result of an ongoing Land Use and Environment Group (LUEG) effort to review and evaluate our organization to improve the overall service delivery to the communities we serve and expand opportunities for growth within LUEG departments.
For more information regarding the changes, please view the Board Letter documents available on the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors website.
