Hancock County health officials are optimistic a merger will get done in 2015. County health commissioner Dr. Greg Arnette tells the Courier the plan is “finally making headway.” The potential for a merger with the city health department was discussed at Wednesday’s Hancock County Board of Health meeting.
Ed Ingold is the president of the board and says both sides are meeting to come up with a contract that works for everyone. Ingold also said that while the plan is good, they’ll know more about what they need when the two departments start working side-by-side in 2015. After that happens he thinks employees will come up with suggestions to make the merger work better.
