County to Hold Public Hearing to Consider a Department of Public Health

The County Commissioners announced at their worksession, Tuesday, that a public hearing has been scheduled for Monday, May 12, 2008 in Room 502 of the County Courthouse "for the purpose of discussing a Lancaster County Health Department."

The Commissioners refused to comment on whether they do or do not favor the creation of such a department, but Minority Commissioner Craig Lehman explained that proponents of the idea deserve a hearing and that the County will be gauging the feasibility of the idea.
