The District Advisory Council is comprised of the 22 mayors and trustees of the villages and townships of Cuyahoga County and the Office of the Cuyahoga County Executive. The advisory council is mandated under section 3709.03 of the Ohio Revised Code to meet annually in March to authorize our contracts with the cities we serve, to review and approve our annual report and to appoint members to our Board of Health.
The Board of Health members are appointed to five-year staggered terms by the advisory council. The Board is comprised of five members, with one of those members appointed from the District Licensing Council, which also provides a Board alternate. The Health Commissioner, who serves as Secretary to the Board, is appointed by the Board, which also appoints the Medical Director. The Board of Health meets monthly to review and approve all fiscal, legal, program and planning operations of the department.
Regularly scheduled Board meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of each month.
