Board of Health is seeking new members

The Medfield Board of Health is seeking new members, and anyone interested should contact Evelyn Clarke at 508-906-3012 or eclarke@medfield.net.

This is the description of the Board of Health from the Town of Medfield website –

Overview

The Board of Health, under the jurisdiction of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, ensures that all state regulations pertaining to public health are enforced. The Board may also promulgate local regulations that it deems to be in the best interest of public health.

The Board of Health employs a Professional Engineer/Agent to review all plans concerning stormwater runoff, drainage, and septic system design as they pertain to subdivisions, commercial property, and private homes. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) gives local boards of health the authority to draft and enforce regulations to enhance Title 5, private wells, and drainage.

Daily Activities

The daily activities are coordinated by the Administrative Agent. The routine services and compliance activities are performed by a Health Agent, a Public Health Nurse, and the Inspector of Animals.
