Council debates Board of Health

Members vote to recommend that mayor appoint four more people, bringing total to seven

(Continued)

Cheryl Sbarra, an attorney with the Massachusetts Association of Health Boards, told councilors last night that she doesn’t know of any community in the state that has a seven-member board of health.

Worcester considered going to seven but decided it was “too unwieldy,” she said.

Salem’s Board of Health is “dead in the water right now, and that’s a problem,” Sbarra said.
