JANUARY BOARD OF HEALTH MEETING
The Bond County Board of Health met Monday evening at the Bond County Health Department building on south Fourth Street. The status of the old Health Department building was on the agenda. So far no sale is forthcoming. The board extended their contract with a local real estate agent to six more months to sell, lease or rent the building. The Health Department will hold an H1N1 clinic this Thursday, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. So far over 4,000 doses of the vaccine have been administered. They recommend that if you have not gotten your immunization shot, stop by and get it. Positive reports were given from the agency's Home Health and Hospice programs with patient surveys overwhelmingly positive. On a monetary issue, the department is still owed around $350,000 from the state and there is some concern if they will receive these monies. Director Maxine Barth was commended for her excellent performance for the past year including being instrumental in adding the dental clinic. The next Board of Health meeting will be Monday, February 8.
