Town Health Officer

Town Health Officer: 

Corey Solitaire      phone 210-243-9573   email

The Town Health Officer is a hybrid position.  Although the Selectboard recommends an individual for appointment to the position and works with the individual on local health problems, the local health officer is appointed by the State commissioner of health.

The local health officer is the person that citizens may call to complain of unsafe conditions in rental housing or on public or private property, or report a septic failure, or an animal that might be rabid.  The health officer must investigate all complaints and has extensive authority to take emergency abatement steps and may enforce ant state health regulations and local ordinances in his/her town.
