Vigo County Health Board Meets


The Vigo County Board of Health remains at odds with the County Council.

The Board of Health met this afternoon to discuss the on-going issue of who should control job classifications. Job classification is important because it can impact salary.

There has been talk of a possible lawsuit but today the board of health voted to collect more information before making a decision.

Health officials did not set a deadline to reach a decision.

“Public health and public safety are the two coveted things, national, state, and local level, that where there should be no political involvement. So that;s what you need to look at today, is do you want to have an injunctive enforcement, or is there some other option that we wish to do,” says Joni Wise, Administrator of Vigo County Health Department.
