County Commissioner Joe Briggs commented on the city’s choice not to sign the amended memorandum of understanding concerning the Board of Health (BOH) governing body earlier this week saying it was their choice, but he doesn’t like being out of compliance with the law, after the county meeting on Thursday. 

“It’s obviously their prerogative to decide what they’re going to do,” Briggs said. “My concern is just that until we get a different agreement, we’re out of compliance with the law, and that bothers me.”

Legislation passed during the last session, including House Bills 121 and 257, require an oversight governing body for the BOH that would have the power to amend emergency decisions made by the BOH. This interim group would satisfy the need for a governing body while it is determined what the makeup of the official governing body will be.
