"Thank You!" to the friends and supporters of the New Philadelphia City Health Dept for supporting this department during the HB 110 deliberations
Thank You: the Ohio Legislature had proposed closing down 19 of the smaller health departments (departments that serve a population less than 50,000 individuals) in Ohio. Through your efforts, calls and letters, an amendment was added to the HB 110 Omnibus Bill that exempted all such departments from this provision, provided the department was accredited or in the process of becoming accredited. Special thanks go to Senator Jay Hottinger for inserting the language into the Omnibus Bill that spared this department. Thank you again to all our supporters!!.
