A volunteer, 11-member Board of Health is appointed by the county board chairman and approved by the county board. Illinois state statute requires the board include: two physicians, a dentist, a county board representative, and interested community members. These volunteers serve 3-year terms and represent the community at large. The Board of Health governs health department operational issues such as the annual budget and the development of policy and procedures.
