Questions about the proposed Board of Health

Shelby County government is seeking to re-institute a Board of Health that was abolished in 1911.

The first question that comes to mind is the most obvious one: After 109 years, does Shelby County really need a board of health?

The answers to that question have varied, the board and its powers have been described in different ways, and the proposal has gone through multiple drafts.
