Board of Health

The Board of Health is responsible for assessing the status of public health in the community, developing policies to address public health needs, and assuring that these needs are met.

The Board of Health is also responsible for inspecting and issuing permits to food vendors and related establishments, pet organizations, community pools, and other businesses.

Members of the public who need to submit permit applications, payments, or otherwise visit the Board of Health in person, should see Board of Health Secretary Linda Palumbo at the Board of Health office at Town Hall.

The Township welcomes and encourages residents who have specific experience applicable to each Committee, Board and Commission to apply for available positions.

However, some committees are always in need of extra volunteers for various events throughout the year.
