BOND COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT MEETING

 

The Bond County Health Department Board met Monday night at the new Bond County Health Department Building on South 4th Street. Following the activity and financial reports, Jon Carpenter from Korte Construction gave an update on the completion of the new building. One of the most uplifting reports was that the cost will be under the budgeted amount of $3.88 million dollars and most of the work should be done in a week. Other issues discussed at the meeting include mental health plans and fees, which was tabled until the next meeting. Also tabled until the next meeting was what to charge for pneumonia shots. A vaccine is being tested for the H1N1 Virus, and the health department was told that almost everyone who has contact with children should get the vaccine. The vaccine will be free of charge but may not be available until October. Ten birds, collected in Bond County, have been submitted for West Nile Virus testing. So far, two of the birds have tested negative and the other eight are still being tested. The public open house for the new health department building will be September 30, from 2:00 - 6:00 p.m. The Bond County Health Department phones will be shut off Wednesday while the phone company transfers the phone service to the new health department building.
